Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies (APCSS) Professor Dr. Mohan Malik published an article entitled “The Pivot in US-China Relations” in the Foreign Policy section of the China – US Focus website http://www.chinausfocus.com.

The website is produced by the  China-United States Exchange Foundation, a non-government and non-profit organization based in Hong Kong. Established in 2008, the China-United States Exchange Foundation seeks to foster a strengthened and improved relationship between China and the United States that is and will continue to be beneficial to China, the United States and the world-at-large.

Dr. Malik’s article highlights the importance of the U.S. – China bilateral relations and asks the questions:

“What does the Asia-Pacific region want from China and the United States?”
“What sort of regional order Asians want to live in the years and decades ahead?”
“What is China’s vision of the regional order in the years and decades ahead?”
“More importantly, are the US and Chinese visions in sync with regional aspirations? What are the similarities and differences in those visions?”

Dr. Malik’s area of expertise is Asian Geopolitics & Proliferation, and he is internationally recognized as an expert and leader in U.S. – China relations and has written several books and articles on the subject.

Dr.  Malik came to the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies in February 2001 from Deakin University in Australia where he was Director of the postgraduate Defense Studies Program. He obtained his Ph.D. in International Relations from the Australian National University, M.Phil in Chinese Studies from Delhi University and Advanced Diploma in Chinese language from Beijing University. He is a trained Sinologist and has broad research interests in Asian Geopolitics, China’s Asia strategy, and nuclear proliferation in the Asia-Pacific. Dr. Malik has lectured at the Australian Joint Services Staff College, Warfare Studies Center, and Australian Defense College and has held Visiting Fellowships at a number of strategic policy “think-tanks” in Asia, Europe and the United States.
