Prospects for the New Sino-Russian Partnership: 2022 Oksenberg Conference
This year’s Oksenberg Conference is entitled “Prospects for the New Sino-Russian Partnership.” Our goal is to explore the “why” and “so what” of this newly bolstered alliance that has been declared as a partnership “with no limits.” What does it mean for the U.S. and other non-autocratic states? Given Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the unprecedented economic sanctions that the US and its allies have slapped on Russia in the wake of that attack, the more immediately important question is: What does this alliance mean for China? How strong is this new bond with Russia? China now finds itself in an extremely difficult position as it tries to protect its own economic relationships with the US and its allies in Europe and Asia. What can or will China do about Russia? How was this alliance sold to the domestic audience of each country?

A roundtable of experts on China and Russia, including those with extensive government experience, joins us to examine this critically important relationship and address the many questions that it raises.

Each panelist will present 10-12 minutes of opening remarks before turning to a moderated discussion. During the last 20 minutes, the moderator will pose curated questions to the roundtable from the audience.

Panelists in alphabetical order:
Una Aleksandra Bērziņa-Čerenkova
Thomas Fingar
Alex Gabuev
Evan Medeiros
Michael McFaul
Jean Oi, Moderator
