Jill Goldenziel on China's Use of Lawfare

Season 1, Ep. 493

In this episode, Dr. Jill Goldenziel, Associate Professor at the Marine Corps University-Command and Staff College and Distinguished Senior Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania's Fox Leadership International Program, discusses her draft article "Law as a Battlefield: The US, China, and the Global Escalation of Lawfare." Goldenziel begins by explaining what "lawfare" is and how states use lawfare to achieve strategic objectives. She reflects on why China finds lawfare especially appealing, and discusses several examples of how China has deployed lawfare strategies. She argues that the United States should develop a more programmatic lawfare strategy, and explains why it would advance United States strategic interests.
