CSIS surveyed thought leaders from 16 nations in Europe and Asia who are influential in the debate on international and/or Asian regional affairs to map their views on U.S. China policy and their own nations’ China policy. The interactive graph below represents how U.S. Allies and Partners answered key questions on national security, economic, and human rights issues. Respondents were asked to rate on a scale of 1 to 10 how much risk the United States is prepared to take defend a U.S. ally or partner in the Asia-Pacific if they come under threat from China, as well as how much risk their country should take to advance human rights in China. Respondents were also asked to rate on a scale of 1 to 10 how important is it for their nations to maintain economic cooperation with China in various areas.
