Security Challenges and Arms Control: European Lessons for Asia
December 23, 2019
2:00 PM—3:30 PM HKT (UTC + 8)
Beijing
International security and stability are facing new challenges with the increase of great power competition and the termination of key arms control treaties, which threaten to destroy the world’s existing cooperative security institutions. The future of traditional military alliances such as NATO is becoming more uncertain, while Russia and China are increasingly working together in areas of strategic security by conducting joint military exercises, air patrols, and cooperating on early warning systems. New challenges from regional players—including North Korea—continue to grow.
Tong Zhao moderated a discussion between Angela Kane and Li Bin, who assessed new developments in the European security landscape and how they may affect the Asia-Pacific region. Kane offered insights on whether lessons Europe learned in implementing cooperative security mechanisms, particularly arms control agreements, may be applicable to Asia and help mitigate key security challenges in the region.
This event was off the record.
