The US, Japan, China, and the Korean Peninsula in a Changing Pacific – March 28
As a major focus of the international political economy, the Asia-Pacific Region is now considered especially significant on the world stage. Surrounded by the world’s three largest economies-the United States, China, and Japan-and impacted by the evolving situations in China and the Korean Peninsula, the future of the region is poised to make a major impact on all of us. How can we best understand this dynamic region? And, more importantly, what role should the United States play as we move forward? Why do US-Japan relations matter to the world today?
Dr. Kent Calder, a leading authority on East Asian international relations, joined us to discuss the challenges and future expectations of this influential region and the current state of the US-China-Korea-Japan relationship.
