Title Framing the China Dynamic.
Publication Date Apr 2012

Abstract In January 2012, the United States Secretary of Defense released a strategy document entitled, 'Sustaining U.S. Global Leadership: Priorities for 21st Century Defense.' U.S. national challenges, interests, priorities, and goals were detailed and as a result, direction and guidance were set forth to shift U.S. strategic priorities and resources to the Asia-Pacific region. If the United States' strategy for the Asia-Pacific region and China is not properly framed and does not evolve with regional and global challenges, the United States risks failure to successfully execute national guidance and risks conflict in the region. Strategy implementation is attainable and desired end- states can be achieved only through a better understanding of the dynamics associated with a rising power, the Asia-Pacific region, its history, the complex relationships involved, existing perspectives and perceptions, current tensions and flashpoints, and an assessment of the strategic risks. Strategic recommendations for the United States will focus on strengthening theoretical awareness of Chinese history and culture, maintaining a regional focus, management of flashpoints, continuous problem framing, thoughtful modernization, and an overall strategy of engagement with China that will enable the United States to successfully execute national guidance, achieve national goals, pursue national interests, and maintain national security.
