Past Event

Shared Challenges and Cooperation for Korea, China and the U.S.

Though Northeast Asia is prosperous and stable relative to hotspots around the world, it faces its share of policy challenges, including potential over-the-horizon threats such as local instability, territorial contests and economic competition. Regional powers including the United States, China and the Republic of Korea – with tremendous political and economic clout – share many of these problems and have roles to play in addressing them.

On December 16, the Center for East Asia Policy Studies at Brookings, the Korea Foundation for Advanced Studies, and Peking University’s School of International Studies hosted a conference continuing deliberations undertaken in Seoul in April 2014. In three sessions, experts from Korea, China, and the United States identified emerging challenges to the international order, analyzed the web of relationships between the Korean Peninsula and major powers and charted paths for the region’s economic future. The conference placed particular emphasis on the opportunities for enhanced cooperation on regional peace, prosperity and security among all three states. The Honorable Daniel Russel, U.S. assistant secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific affairs, made an opening keynote address.
