Special Issue on US-China Policy

The International Affairs Review seeks submissions for a special issue on US-China policy. The special issue will address the following topic: 

How should the United States and China avoid Thucydides' Trap? Some theorists argue that when a new power rises the established power will resist making sufficient, timely accommodations to avoid conflict and avert war. Some scholars predict such a conflict between the United States and China and, in effect, call for preparing for war. Other experts point out that in several historical cases, the established powers made accommodations, and the new powers found their place within a restructured world order. What can be done by the United States and by China to make such a peaceful transition to a new world order? How would both powers uphold such a new world order that would benefit other countries in the region and worldwide?

The International Affairs Review will accept policy-oriented research articles of 4,000 to 6,000 words and book reviews of 1,000-1,200 words. Submissions for this special issue must be submitted electronically as Microsoft Word documents to iar[at]gwu[dot]edu (CC: esyring[at]gwu[dot]edu) no later than March 1, 2015.
