A Shifting Power Balance in the Indo-Pacific: Views from Tokyo and Moscow
March 22, 2021
12:00 PM—1:00 PM MSK
Zoom Webinar
TRANSCRIPT
With the arrival of the Biden administration, an increased focus on China is clear in the speeches of senior U.S. officials and drafts of strategic documents. It looks like across-the-board competition with China is becoming the core of U.S. foreign policy. One of the instruments that Washington is using to limit China’s assertiveness in the Indo-Pacific region is the reinvigorated Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (QUAD) with Japan, Australia, and India.
At the same time, China's own foreign policy has shifted significantly since 2012. Russia, meanwhile, is not the most influential player in Indo-Pacific geopolitics, but in tandem with China, that might change.
These questions and much more were on the agenda in a discussion featuring Akio Takahara, a professor of contemporary Chinese politics at the Graduate Schools for Law and Politics and the Graduate School of Public Policy at the University of Tokyo; and Alexander Gabuev, chair of the Russia in the Asia-Pacific program at the Carnegie Moscow Center.
The event was be held in English with simultaneous interpretation into Russian.
