Panel to explore Asian strategic thought, Feb. 4
Posted January 27, 2005; 06:41 p.m.
Scholars from Princeton and other institutions will gather for a
"Panel on Asian Strategic Thought in 2004" from 2 to 5 p.m. Friday,
Feb. 4, in 1 Robertson Hall.
This event is intended to raise awareness of Asia as an increasingly integrated region and to help identify and explain the ways in which major Asian actors are responding to changes in both the regional and global order. Among the topics under discussion will be: Sino-Indian and Sino-Russian ties; the fallout from the Korean nuclear crisis; and the intensification of Sino-Japanese differences over strategic matters.
In 2004, there was a realignment in Asia from which new ways of
thinking about problems emerged. The panel will feature an array of
scholars who will examine the strategic viewpoints of China, Japan,
Korea, Russia, India and Indonesia as well as discuss the resulting
prospects for regionalism.
Speakers will include Princeton's Thomas Christensen, Kazuhiko Togo, Joseph Ferguson and Gilbert Rozman, along with Korea University's Shin-wha Lee, Johns Hopkins University's Walter Andersen and former Swarthmore College President Theodore Friend.
The panel, part of Project Strategic Asia, is sponsored by the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies.
