Join 80+ communities across the United States in a national conversation on China.
Featuring an interactive webcast with former UN Ambassador Susan Rice, and on-site discussion with Jeremy Goldkorn.
Ambassador Susan E. Rice served President Barack Obama as national security advisor and U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations. In her role as national security advisor from July 1, 2013, to January 20, 2017, Ambassador Rice led the National Security Council staff and chaired the Cabinet-level National Security Principals Committee. She provided the President daily national security briefings and was responsible for coordinating the formulation and implementation of all aspects of the Administration’s foreign and national security policy, intelligence, and military efforts.
As U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations (UN) and a member of President Obama’s cabinet, Ambassador Rice worked to advance U.S. interests, defend universal values, strengthen the world’s security and prosperity, and promote respect for human rights. In a world of 21st century threats that pay no heed to borders, Ambassador Rice helped rebuild an effective basis for international cooperation that strengthened the United States’ ability to achieve its foreign policy objectives and made the American people safer.
Jeremy Goldkorn is the Editor-in-chief of SupChina and co-founder of the Sinica Podcast.
He is also the founder and director of Danwei, a research firm that tracks Chinese media, markets, politics and business. The company started in 2003 as a blog that the The London Review of Books said gave “a range of sources, news and opinions on China that no mainstream news organisation can match.” Danwei began offering research services to companies and financial institutions in 2006. The Financial Times acquired Danwei in 2013, after which Goldkorn also took charge of the custom research services of FT Confidential China, Latin America, and ASEAN services.
Hosted in conjunction with the National Committee on U.S. China Relations.
