Audience: 
Open to the Public
Speaker(s): 
Alanna Krolikowski, CWP fellow
Sponsor: 

Princeton-Harvard China and the World Program of the Woodrow Wilson School whose mission is to encourage research on China’s foreign relations and China within the international relations context

Civil-commercial aircraft manufacturing and space manufacturing are both strategic high-technology sectors. China and the United States trade and cooperate in civil-commercial air, but neither trade nor cooperate in civil-commercial space. This lecture explores why and how China-U.S. relations vary across these two sectors.
 
Alanna Krolikowski’s research focuses on China-U.S. relations in strategic high-technology sectors. Her doctoral dissertation examines trade and technical cooperation between the two countries in commercial aircraft-manufacturing and civil-commercial space. During her time in the Program, she will develop this project to examine bilateral relations in other high-technology sectors. Alanna is currently completing a PhD in political science at the University of Toronto. She has conducted research in Beijing and at several other sites across China as a visiting scholar in the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and in Washington, DC, as a visiting scholar in the Space Policy Institute of The George Washington University. Alanna graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with First Class Honours from McGill University and has a Master's degree from the University of Toronto. Alanna is in residence at Harvard University.
