This webinar shines a light on the US-led moves towards militarization of the Pacific, and explores possibilities for building peace.
About this Event
Early indications from the Biden administration are that it proposes to continue the New Cold War on China, including through attempts to expand NATO’s sphere of operation into the Pacific. No Cold War is pleased to be hosting a line-up of peace campaigners and academic to explore the issues of the ‘Quad’ and associated attempts to construct an anti-China regional alliance; US military bases; the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system; the South China Sea; and the prospects for a peaceful Pacific.
