China’s Use of Force Short of War: Events, Approaches, Outcomes, and Their Implications for U.S. Security Policy

Grant Year: 2022

James Siebens, Yun Sun, and Barry Blechman will lead an effort to assess how the Chinese government has employed military force to advance its interests through operations short of high-intensity warfare. They will compile a dataset of all such operations between 2000 and 2020 and analyze those data to understand how successful these efforts have been. The project’s findings will be published in a report.
