Stanford-China Track 2 Cyber Diplomacy
It is well known that the cyber relationship between China and the United States is a source of great friction between the two nations. As a step towards improving the cyber relationship, the CISAC/Hoover cyber program will seek to build a sustainable and ongoing dialogue with China, through an initial effort to conduct cooperative research on cybersecurity-related issues. This cooperative effort involves two workshops, one held at a Chinese university and another at Stanford. These workshops (and the resulting publications) should be regarded as a proof of concept that a productive dialogue between Stanford and the Chinese is possible, and funding from a variety of sources would be sought after this project to expand the dialogue and to make it more sustainable.
