Episode 9: Sanctioning China: Examining the Dilemma


Emily Kilcrease, Senior Fellow and Director of the Energy, Economics and Security Programme at CNAS discusses the findings of a recent CNAS report on 'Assessing the US Playbook for Sanctioning China'.

China’s regular muscle-flexing and other threatening moves towards Taiwan poses a great challenge. How should the West think about this behaviour, given the integration of China into the international economy and the extent to which the West relies on trade with Beijing? Could sanctions be used as a policy instrument here?

In this episode, host Kinga Redlowska, Head of CFCS Europe, is joined by Emily Kilcrease, Senior Fellow and Director of the Energy, Economics and Security Programme at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS). They discuss the findings of a recent CNAS report entitled ‘No Winners in This Game: Assessing the US Playbook for Sanctioning China’. If you are curious about possible sanctions scenarios in the case of an escalation of tensions between the US and China, then don’t miss this week’s episode.
