U.S. Policy in the Asia-Pacific Under Trump: New Challenges to the Region’s Security Structure?
November 27, 2017
10:30 AM—12:30 PM MSK
Moscow
Carnegie Moscow Center hosted a seminar on U.S. policy in the Indo-Pacific region under the Donald Trump administration and the new challenges it might bring to the system of checks and balances in regional security.
The APEC and EAS summits, which concluded in early November, underscored not only the importance of the Indo-Pacific region as a driver of global growth, but also the mounting challenges to regional security. Territorial disputes between a rising China and its neighbors, the escalation of tensions on the Korean peninsula, and increased geo-economic rivalry among major powers put regional stability at risk. At this crucial time, the Trump administration is still formulating its policy toward the region. As America increasingly disengages from the region, countries like Japan, India, South Korea, and Australia are looking for ways to step up their cooperation in order to jointly tackle various challenges.
These and many other questions were discussed by a panel of distinguished experts. Carnegie’s Alexander Gabuev moderated.
