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

Grant Year: 2020

James Siebens, Yun Sun, and Barry Blechman will research and write a report assessing how China has employed military force to advance its interests through operations short of high-intensity warfare. They will compile a dataset of all instances in which China has used force short of war between the years 2000 and 2020 to understand how China seeks to exercise coercion and how successful these efforts have been.
