Johns Hopkins SAIS experts available to discuss the future of U.S.-China relations

As President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office in less than a month and move on promises to alter the course of American foreign policy, experts at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) are available to discuss the future of U.S.-China relations. 
David M. Lampton, Director of China Studies and the George and Sadie Hyman Professor of China Studies, is the former president of the National Committee on United States-China Relations and founding director of the China Policy Program at the American Enterprise Institute. He is the author of numerous articles and books on Chinese domestic and foreign policies including Following the Leader: Ruling China, from Deng Xiaoping to Xi Jinping and The Three Faces of Chinese Power: Might, Money, and Minds. Lampton also received the U.S.-China Policy Foundation's Lifetime Achievement in U.S.-China Education Award in November. He most recently wrote “China: Challenger or Challenged?” for The Washington Quarterly, Fall 2016 Issue. 
Carla Freeman, Associate Director of China Studies and Director of the Foreign Policy Institute, was interim American co-director of the Hopkins-Nanjing Center and Program Officer for civil society at The Johnson Foundation. She has also been a visiting scholar at Harvard University’s Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and a Peace Scholar at the U.S. Institute of Peace. Freeman is the editor-in-chief of the journal Asian Perspective. Her most recent publications are edited volumes on China's relations with developing countries and the China-North Korea relationship. Her current book project is on China and the global commons.
