[Lecture] US-China Relations and the “Re-Balance“ to Asia
Speaker: Prof. Thomas Fingar
Venue: Stanford Center
Date: Oct. 27, 2014 (Monday)
Organizer: The Stanford Center at Peking University
Professor Thomas Fingar, former Assistant Secretary of State, Oksenberg-Rohlen Distinguished Fellow, works in Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, Stanford University .
The Obama Administration’s “Re-Balance” to Asia has been poorly explained, widely misunderstood, and deliberately misconstrued by officials and commentators on both sides of the Pacific. Professor Thomas Fingar will analyze the origins and objectives of the Re-Balance and attempt to explain and address questions and concerns raised by the Chinese and others in the region.
From May 2005 through December 2008, Fingar served as the first Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Analysis and, concurrently, as Chairman of the National Intelligence Council. He served previously as Assistant Secretary of the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research (2004-2005), Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary (2001-2003), Deputy Assistant Secretary for Analysis (1994-2000), Director of the Office of Analysis for East Asia and the Pacific (1989-1994), and Chief of the China Division (1986-1989).
