Three Tigers, One Mountain: China, Japan and America in the Asian Century

Event Co-sponsors

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ROOM HAS CHANGED TO THE 6TH FLOOR BOARDROOM

Sino-Japanese relations have descended into poisonous acrimony in recent years in battles over history and disputed territory, leaving the United States--still east Asia's major power--a virtual bystander.

Can Japan and China restore relations to build a more productive partnership? And what are the interests of the United States, a longstanding defence ally of Japan and increasingly a strategic rival of China's, in Sino-Japanese ties? Do U.S. strategic interest ultimately benefit from a situation where Asia's two great indigenous powers are at odds?
