From rising Chinese assertiveness in the South China Sea to the North Korean nuclear missile launch, the Asian region’s security landscape is far from stable. America’s presence has been essential to peace and security in Asia for many decades, yet this no longer seems to be the case. Despite some signs of reassurance from the Trump administration, the direction of future U.S. engagement in the Asian region remains unclear. What does President Trump’s Asia trip mean for Japan? Will the Trump administration continue to support U.S. allies in Asia? How will the United States respond to North Korea? In this program, experts provide their thoughts on the Trump administration’s Asia policy, key developments and trends, and the security outlook in Asia.

Speakers:
Daniel Russel, Diplomat in Residence & Senior Fellow, Asia Society Policy Institute; former Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs; former Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Asian Affairs, National Security Council
