Russia-Ukraine Dialogues: The Future of China-Russia Relations

November 1, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Register to attend via Zoom

This panel discussion welcomes experts to discuss the evolving relationship between China and Russia. Panelists will discuss the status of China-Russia diplomatic relations, economic and diplomatic lessons learned from the war, and impacts on the People’s Liberation Army’s military strategy.


Lukas Fiala is a PhD International Relations candidate at LSE, researching China’s defence industry, military strategy and emerging security relationships with countries in the Global South. He is also the Project Coordinator of China Foresight, the China-focused research programme at LSE IDEAS.

Dr Björn Alexander Düben is an Assistant Professor at the School of International and Public Affairs at Jilin University. He analyses China’s reaction to, and motivation in implicitly supporting, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, even as Putin’s strategic blunder becomes increasingly difficult to deal with.

Dr Yu Jie is senior research fellow on China at Chatham House, focusing on the decision-making process of Chinese foreign policy as well as China’s economic diplomacy. She frequently comments in major media outlets such as BBC News and the Financial Times; and regularly briefs senior policy practitioners from the G7 member governments, the Silk Road Fund in Beijing. Yu Jie was previously head of China Foresight at LSE IDEAS and remains as an associate fellow with LSE IDEAS.

Chair: Leon Hartwell is the Senior Advisor for the Central and South Eastern European Programme at LSE IDEAS and a Non-Resident Senior Fellow at the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) in Washington DC. His research interests include conflict resolution, genocide, transitional justice, diplomacy, democracy, and the Western Balkans.


This event is part of the Russia-Ukraine Dialogues series. Given the recent escalation of the Russo-Ukrainian war (24 February 2022), the conflict continues to be fluid and requires cross-disciplinary analysis. Weekly panels on Tuesdays bring together in-house and external experts to report on and discuss the war’s impacts on various global issues.

From the 1st of November 2022, the LSE IDEAS Russia-Ukraine Dialogues is part-funded by PeaceRep (the Peace and Conflict Resolution Evidence Platform), an international research project rethinking peace and transition processes in light of changing conflict dynamics led by the University of Edinburgh Law School.
