Blurring Borders: National, Subnational, and Regional Orders in East Asia | Wilson Center

Event Details

In Japan and China, resurgent nationalism has reinforced the political importance of the region’s most powerful nation-states, fed international tensions in the region, and created additional challenges for U.S. policy.

U.S. policy toward the region must grapple with these developments. Key components of Washington’s agenda in security affairs and the pursuit of the Trans-Pacific Partnership in economic affair have the potential to rearrange substantially the patterns of cooperation and conflict in the region. Many discrete issues are implicated, including the reinvigorated alliance with Japan, new security cooperation with Singapore and Vietnam, shifting assessments of Taiwan’s place in U.S.-China relations and the regional order, and the possibility of a growing U.S.-China rivalry focused in part on the multilateral arrangements that both great powers are building. Join us June 1 for a conference to discuss the challenges of the changing faces of nationalism in East Asia.
