Ambassador Jeffrey Bader, John Whitehead Senior Fellow in International Diplomacy, John L. Thornton China Center, The Brookings Institution, and former National Security Council senior director for East Asian affairs, delivered the keynote address at the 2013 Barnett-Oksenberg Lecture on Sino-American Relations to an audience in Shanghai. Now in its eighth year, this annual forum affords its guests the opportunity for a frank and forthright discussion of current and potential issues between the two counties; it is the first and only ongoing lecture series on U.S.-China relations to take place on the Mainland.
