You can access our ongoing podcast series "SSI Live" with our own Dr. John R. Deni. What is the "U.S. Factor" in Chinese perceptions of international relations? How is it manifested in, for example, disputed claims in the South China Sea, or in broader U.S.-Chinese relations? SSI Live host Dr. John R. Deni invited his SSI colleague, Dr. David Lai, to discuss these questions and related issues, including how the United States and China can escape the cycle of misperception and conspiracy theorizing.
