Understanding Chinese Nuclear Thinking

Chinese nuclear experts think about nuclear weapons very differently from their U.S. counterparts. They use different terminology and contrasting security paradigms to discuss and make decisions on nuclear policy. In their latest report, Li Bin and Tong Zhao, both scholars at Carnegie's Nuclear Policy program, presented their findings on the topic.
The panel explores how Washington and Beijing can promote an effective dialogue and shared understanding despite their disparate approaches.
