In this talk, Mr. Patrick will address two things that will shape trans-Pacific international relations in the years to come: 1) whether or how Chinese and American views of regional order can be reconciled, given their competing norms and visions; and 2) what role the U.S. alliance system might play in reassuring allies around security flashpoints, such as the East and South China Seas and the Korean Peninsula.
