The U.S.-China Cyberwar Needs Detente

Media Coverage | August 31, 2015

In an op-ed for The Boston Globe, EWI Fellow Greg Austin talks about the significance of detente in ending the U.S.-China cyberwar. 

In an op-ed, Austin writes that "US perceptions about China in cyberspace hinge on a few mistaken beliefs. They include the notion that there are unambiguous norms in cyberspace that China is flagrantly violating; a failure to appreciate China's deep insecurity in cyberspace; a lack of knowledge of America's extensive cyberspionage and cyber military operations against China; and an inflation of the threat from China's theft of intellectual property."
