Prospects for South Korea-Japan Cooperation for the International Order

Prospects for South Korea-Japan Cooperation for the International Order
Leif-Eric Easley, Associate Professor of International Studies, Ewha Womans University (Seoul, South Korea)
Monday, March 20, 5:00 PM
Woolley Room, Mary Lyon Hall

North Korea’s nuclear missile threats and China’s regional assertiveness make coordination between South Korea and Japan more critical than ever. Although relations between South Korea and Japan have often been strained over history, they are better managed than either side is given credit. How are South Korea and Japan working to calibrate their policies toward China while coordinating with one another and the United States to preserve the rules-based international order?

This event is made possible by the Department of Political Science and the Diana Davis Spencer Chair of Social Entrepreneurship.
