China-West Dialogue

The Vision20 (V20) was created in 2015 to address global challenges of our world and offer a new vision for global collaboration especially with respect to the G20 and other global summits. Over a series of G20 summits the V20 proposed solutions to the growing global governance challenges by offering innovative approaches, inclusiveness, and dialogue among the many diverse G20 players.

Now the V20 principals, Alan Alexandroff, Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy, University of Toronto, Colin Bradford, Brookings Institutions, and Yves Tiberghien, University of British Columbia, have initiated a vital new V20 project – the China and the West Dialogue (CWD). This effort with experts, policymakers and former officials has sought to address the rising U.S-China tensions and to find ways to bring greater global cooperation in increasing difficult geopolitical and geoeconomic environments.

The first Workshop was held in March 2020, virtually, with the support of BU’s Kevin Gallagher. The initial results can be seen here: http://www.bu.edu/gdp/cwd/

There is much more to come. Follow us here on the CWD website and here to see background research from several CWD participants.
