After four decades of engagement between the United States and authoritarian regimes in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and the Russian Federation, concerns about national security and competitiveness have increased calls for economic disengagement, known colloquially as “decoupling.” The process of decoupling heightens risks for companies and investors that must navigate compliance with complex U.S. laws and export controls, and raises a number of questions about what compliance actually looks like. At the same time, decoupling provides new opportunities to revitalize U.S. innovation, including through joint public-private co-investments. Understanding both the fault lines and the benefits to the United States of decoupling is critical to ensuring the long-term success and leadership of U.S. technology.

Join us to learn more about navigating the risks and opportunities of decoupling and how enhanced public and private sector collaboration and information sharing can ease the transition to a possible future marked by protectionism, self-reliance, and deep alliances. 

This is an in-person event. Attendance is by invitation only and discussions are subject to Chatham House Rule. If you have questions about the event, please contact Kristen Savelle, Co-Executive Director of Stanford Rock Center for Corporate Governance at ksavelle@law.stanford.edu.
