Time:5:15-7:45 p.m.
Description:The Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law and the William P. Clements Jr. Center on History, Strategy and Statecraft jointly invite you to "The Fourth Policeman: FDR's Vision for China's Global Role," with Erez Manela, professor at Harvard University. Refreshments provided.

It is well known that U.S. president Franklin Roosevelt envisioned a postwar order based on four great powers, the so-called "four policemen": the United States, the Soviet Union, Great Britain and China. But why did Roosevelt insist on including China among the four policemen when China had long been considered a minor power and when his other wartime allies, Churchill and Stalin, both strongly opposed the idea? This talk explores this question and shows how it shed light on U.S. global strategy in the 1940s and since.
Location:Sid Richardson Hall (SRH), LBJ School of Public Affairs, 3.124
