The United States Re-Balancing In East Asia

March 26, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The United States Re-Balancing In East Asia

LogoThere has been much debate on what exactly the phrase “re-balancing” means for the role of the United States in East Asia. Some speculate that we are witnessing the beginning of a Cold War with China, whereas others hope for a greater level of economic engagement with the region as a whole. Unfortunately, few discussions about the United States and its relationship with East Asia take a long-term perspective. Critical questions such as climate change, demographic shifts in the region, and the exponential evolution of technology have been left out of the debate on the American role. This seminar will take a broader view of “re-balancing” while addressing a range of innovative policies that could ensure a long-term and cooperative U.S. presence in the East Asian region. Event is hosted by the Asia Institute and IPS’ Foreign Policy in Focus.


  • Lawrence Wilkerson, Former Chief of Staff to the U.S. Secretary of State and Visiting Professor, College of William and Mary,

  • Daniel Garrett, Former diplomat and Senior Associate at The Asia Institute
