With the American Voices Initiative, the Institute for China-America Studies (ICAS) has undertaken a series of interviews with American experts on the US-China relationship. These interviews will be produced periodically and will introduce U.S. and Chinese audiences to a range of American views on security, economics, and global governance issues. The program works to identify areas in the China-U.S. relationship in need of more mutual understanding and seeks to introduce innovative ideas for promoting cooperative relations between the two nations.

The ICAS American Voices Initiative interviewed Michael Swaine of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Dr. Swaine discusses stability in the Western Pacific and perception issues in the U.S.-China relationship with ICAS's Alek Chance.
