      EVENT DETAILS
      Fellow Sue Mi Terry “U.S. Policy Towards Northeast Asia & Beyond” (Students Only, Off the Record)

      What is the status of U.S. relations with the key nations of Northeast Asia—Japan, China, and South Korea? How does a potential deal with North Korea affect U.S. relations with these key regional players—and how will they shape their own foreign policies in the future? If the U.S. were to conclude a peace deal with North Korea and pull its troops out of South Korea, what are the implications for the regional balance of power? If the U.S. were to accept North Korea as a de facto nuclear power, what will this mean for the potential nuclear ambitions of Japan and South Korea? How can the United States manage the rivalries and relationships between these three states that are of such pivotal interest to the future of the region—and the world? With President Trump pursuing tariffs against China, and U.S. leaders warning against the threat posed by China, the U.S.-China relationship is now as unsettled as it is important. Will China and America remain trade partners and strategic rivals or is their relationship in the process of being permanently redefined? The seminar will conclude with final thoughts on the role of Northeast Asia in U.S. foreign policy and how to manage relations with this increasingly powerful region in the future.
