The Peace and War Summit at Norwich University, America’s oldest private military college and birthplace of the Reserved Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC), examines significant international issues in order to recommend viable solutions. The inaugural Summit, a two-day event, addressed North Korea’s nuclear and missile challenges in September 2018. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 2nd Summit will be held virtually, and it will deal with a most challenging issue in the current global community—escalation of the U.S.-China rivalry. Specifically, the Summit will highlight challenges derived from military/security, economic, and technological angles. 

                        Moderator: Mr. Eddie W. Habeck (Norwich University)  

                        Presenter: Mr. Bryce Barros (German Marshall Fund) 

                        Presenter: Mr. Peter Marino (New School for Social Research) 

Since 2017, China has been stepping up disruptive and malicious informational attacks on Western and democratic countries in efforts to influence domestic politics and advance Chinese interests. How can these attacks be categorized and understood, how can Democracies frame their objectives, and, ultimately, become more resilient to their influence?
