U.S.-China Project on Crisis Avoidance & Cooperation

Together with Chinese partners, the institute brings together U.S. and PRC officials for closed discussions on a host of economic, financial, security, and environmental issues.

The U.S.-China Project on Crisis Avoidance & Cooperation (PCAC) is a Track 1.5 project run by the Center for Conflict Analysis and Prevention at the U.S. Institute of Peace. Together with its Chinese partners the Institute brings together U.S. and Chinese officials for closed discussions on a host of security, political, economic, financial and environmental issues. PCAC’s key objectives are:

  1. To foster deeper mutual understanding of traditional and nontraditional security issues that could have significant unintended consequences for U.S.-China relations, and
  2. To exchange views on how to address these pressing policy issues. By facilitating joint "policy R&D" analytical work on these issues, the Institute seeks to increase mutual understanding between U.S. and Chinese participants and inform the development of policies.

John S. Park, senior research associate in the Center for Conflict Analysis and Prevention, is co-director of PCAC.
