Associate Dean, Institute of International Studies
Former Director, Center for American Studies
Fudan University, Shanghai

Professor Shen Dingli returns to the World Affairs Council for an update on China’s emergence as a global power and an assessment of U.S.-Chinese relations. Can China capitalize on the declining cost of energy to address domestic challenges? Will it focus on asserting itself in foreign policy? Are China and the U.S. finding shared interests in managing regional conflicts or global concerns such as climate change and the environment?

Shen Dingli is a professor and associate dean at Fudan University’s Institute of International Studies. His research and publications cover China-US security relations, regional security and international strategy, arms control and nonproliferation, and foreign and defense policy of China and the US. He is Vice President of the Chinese Association of South Asian Studies, Shanghai Association of International Studies, Shanghai Association of American Studies and Shanghai UN Research Association. He received his Ph.D. in physics from Fudan University in 1989 and did post-doctorate work in arms control at Princeton University from 1989-1991. He was an Eisenhower Fellow in 1996 and is on the Global Council of the Asia Society. He is appointed by the Shanghai Hangzhou Municipalities as those cities’ Conference Ambassador.

Professor Shen is visiting and teaching at Colorado College during winter block, under the auspices of the CC Department of History and the Asia Program.
