People's Liberation Army (PLA) Conference
Assessing China's Military
In collaboration with the Strategic Studies Institute (SSI) of the U.S. Army War College and the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command (USINDOPACOM), NBR convenes an invitation-only conference assembling the world’s leading specialists from academe, government, the military, and policy think tanks to examine critical trends in the study of China’s military.
Held annually in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, the conference identifies a unique topic each year through which to explore the key developments in PLA studies. The findings of each conference result in an edited volume published by SSI. Since its inception in 1990, the conference has remained an invaluable source of analysis and research on the PLA.
