This talk explores Russia’s ties with East Asia through the lens of migration and policy.  Russia spans the Eurasian continent, yet its historic and present connections with East Asia are often forgotten.  At the turn of the 20th century, thousands of Asian migrants arrived in the Russian Far East, spurring fears of a “yellow peril.” A century later, the recent influx of new Asian migrants to Russia has generated similar sentiments.  The talk discusses Asian migration in the context of cross-regional attempts to strengthen trade ties and diplomatic relations in the 21st century.
