2017 East Asia Security Symposium and Conference FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF ASIA-PACIFIC SECURITY COOPERATION 亚太安全合作的基本原则
The 2017 conference – Fundamental Principles of Asia-Pacific Security Cooperation – will focus on new research in fields such as diplomacy, global political economy, history, international conflict management, international relations, peace studies and strategic studies. Participants in this ongoing series of conferences represent numerous disciplines, and often employ inter-disciplinary methods in developing their research.
Participants will explore the principles of Asia-Pacific security aiming to identify areas for collaboration, the risks of competition and emerging conflict, and how best to manage the perceived interest of states for significant re-definition of security cooperation. On January 11 China’s White Paper titled China’s Policies on Asia-Pacific Cooperation was published and in the United States President Trump’s administration is revising policy, norms and expectations. Events and issues are thus to be recast within the disturbed setting.
The subjects to be deliberated include the South and East China Seas’ territorial issues and UNCLOS. The Korean peninsula and nuclear weapons programs and delivery systems. The roles of middle and small powers within the region (e.g. Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam). Japan and Taiwan’s place within the region and their hub and spokes links to the US Alliance system. Trade and trade mechanisms (e.g. America-first smart trade, Belt Road Initiative, Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, Trans-Pacific Partnership-1).
