The framework of great power competition and the rhetoric of the ‘China challenge’ has taken root throughout US policy circles, but do America’s allies view China in the same light? Perhaps the real “China challenge” is not China itself, but the struggles the US may face in rallying its allies to its side. In this video, IGA Board President Ian Bremmer explores why the US and its European allies diverge on China, and what that might mean for US foreign policy.

This post is part of Independent America, a research project led out by IGA senior fellow Mark Hannah, which seeks to explore how US foreign policy could better be tailored to new global realities and to the preferences of American voters.
