Our pillars of work
This initiative capitalizes on the breadth of the Atlantic Council’s geographic reach and expertise on China across everything from security, to energy, to technology, to the economy, to information integrity in order to provide US and allied decision-makers with strategic solutions to the vexing questions posed by China’s rise.
What happens in China no longer stays in China. China’s approach to everything, from economic reform to mounting political repression, affects its trajectory as a great power and directly impacts US and allied interests and values. China Inside Out provides cutting-edge insights into the domestic drivers of China’s external behavior to shape effective allied responses.
Emerging technologies will dominate the competition for industries of the future. At risk are not only their associated economic benefits, but the future of democracy and individual rights. Promoting policy and technological advances that bolster democratic governance and individual rights will help the US and its allies outflank rather than react to China’s techno-authoritarian efforts.
