The Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies (CNAPS) at the Brookings Institution will hold a Regional Forum at Peking University in Beijing, China, on Tuesday, October 15. Brookings President Strobe Talbott will lead a delegation of senior Brookings scholars from the United States to participate in the Forum, titled “Where is the United States Going? What Does It Mean for East Asia?“
Experts from China, Korea, and Taiwan will also participate in panel discussion groups at the forum, held annually in East Asia. The one-day conference, which will focus on U.S. foreign policy and the East Asian region since the September 11 terrorist attacks, is co-sponsored by Peking University’s School of International Studies. There will be three discussion panels on political, economic, and security issues.
Established in 1998, the Brookings Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies (CNAPS) serves as a locus for research, analysis, and outreach designed to enhance policy development and understanding on the pressing political, economic, and security issues facing Northeast Asia.

[President Trump’s public showmanship on North Korea] is creating a huge buzz where everyone wants to know what’s going on and what comes next...It’s a very dramatic way of conducting foreign policy and national security. But it creates a thin veneer of understanding. It’s mostly about symbolism...[Trump’s focus is] very much getting the public involved and invested in what’s going on. That’s the way you shape the narrative...[South Korea President] Moon is doing something similar. By televising the summit, televising the meetings, he’s creating an intimacy between the viewer and the object.
