How was the concept of great power competition reflected in the G7 Leaders meeting in Japan? Did the leaders show they have shared goals and visions, or just shared adversaries and challenges? Europe and the United States have for years had different relationships with the Indo Pacific region. Europe’s agenda has been dominated by trade, while the United States has balanced between security and trade agendas, with both merging to a larger degree during the past few years. How will this dynamic develop? Drawing on a recent CSIS study: Deny, Defect, Deter: Countering China’s Economic Coercion (https://www.csis.org/analysis/deny-deflect-deter-countering-chinas-economic-coercion) which examined, among others, the cases of Norway and Lithuania, Matt Goodman will address these questions and discuss how the US and Europe can manage competition with China.
