Sponsored by the UC Lab Fees Research Program
In collaboration with UC San Diego, UC Irvine, and UCLA, the Berkeley APEC Study Center has received a large grant from the UC Laboratory Fees Research Program. This project, “Great Power Competition in the 21st Century: The Struggle for Technological, Economic, and Strategic Supremacy” runs from April 2018 to March 2021. BASC hosted a conference on October 24, 2019, focusing on three highly inter-related elements of geo-economic competition with critical implications for strategic rivalry. These are: 1) the pursuit of industrial policy; 2) the creation of new trading arrangements; and 3) the changing landscape of investment. Participants attended from around the globe, with a subsequent conference scheduled for late 2021.
