In an era marked by the return of great power competition, the revisionist challenge from Russia and China has also extended into the strategic nuclear realm, as both countries are significantly modernizing their capabilities and updating their doctrines. Although China mostly focuses on developments in the US as the main driver for its nuclear modernization, Chinese experts are increasingly referring to its increasingly complex “nuclear neighborhood.” Project will examine Chinese assessments of ongoing changes in Russian strategic doctrine and capabilities and analyze how these changes are likely to influence China’s current and future strategic doctrine and capabilities. It will also examine the impact of these potential implications for U.S. maritime and strategic interests. Deliverables include a comprehensive PPT brief and a summary report.
Researcher, Michael Glosny, will leverage his expertise in Chinese foreign and security policy and experience in examining the US-China nuclear relationship to provide analysis of China’s response to ongoing changes in Russian strategic forces. He has conducted research on the broader Sino-Russian relationship, cultivated relationships with most of the Chinese government and university experts on Russia, and developed familiarity with Chinese-language materials on Russia and Sino-Russian relations. For the last eight years, he has also served as the co-PI for the DTRA-funded Track 1.5 U.S.-China Strategic Dialogue on nuclear issues, which has enabled him to develop significant expertise in Chinese nuclear issues and deepen relationships with strategic experts in China’s military, scientific, and civilian circles. This project will draw on the foundation of this expertise to provide a deeper assessment and analysis of how ongoing strategic changes in Russia are affecting Chinese views of Russia, assessments of its nuclear environment, and developments in its nuclear thinking, strategy, doctrine, and capabilities.
