A Professor Who Challenges the Washington Consensus on China

The New Yorker profiled Jessica Chen Weiss, Michael J. Zak Professor for China and Asia-Pacific Studies in the College of Arts & Sciences and professor in the Brooks School of Public Policy as an influential public intellectual in "A Professor Who Challenges the Washington Consensus on China."

"Weiss has emerged as a kind of loyal and measured opposition to a rare case of bipartisan consensus in Washington—that China must be countered at all costs," writes Ian Johnson in the New Yorker.

He describes her "policy-focussed approach" as calling for the United States to "be willing to offer rewards for better Chinese behavior, rather than solely a series of punishments, and set up more regular contact between Washington and Beijing"—though as Weiss notes elsewhere, those approaches must be both conditional and reciprocal.
