The Big Question: Will US-China Tensions Boil Over?

The Big Question is a regular feature in which Project Syndicatecommentators concisely address a timely topic. Recent failures to manage deep bilateral differences risk taking Sino-American relations into dangerous new territory. As the superpower rivalry intensifies, earlier hopes of effective cooperation on tackling issues such as climate change and pandemic preparedness have given way to increasing fears of a possible war over Taiwan.

In this Big Question, we ask Brahma Chellaney, Bonnie Glaser, Keyu Jin, Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Minxin Pei, and Kevin Rudd whether the United States and China can avoid a potentially catastrophic military confrontation.
