ROK-U.S. Cooperation in an Era of U.S.-China Strategic Competition

How should middle powers such as South Korea navigate the growing strategic competition between the United States and China? For Northeast Asian nations like South Korea, maintaining harmonious relations with China has been a priority going back centuries while its alliance with the United States dates back only decades. Scholars from Asia and the United States will debate the dilemma faced by South Korea and debate the direction the Seoul government should take as the nation seeks to strike the right balance in policy with its allies and neighbors.
