2017 East Asia Security Symposium and Conference

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.

与会者将探讨亚太地区安全原则,以确定合作领域、竞争和出现冲突的风险,以及如何平衡各国的利益,为该地区的安全合作赋予新的内涵。1月11日,中国发布了名为《中国亚太合作政策》的白皮书;针对亚太地区,美国特朗普政府也正在重新制定政策、规范和期望。 因此,在这个风起云涌的地区,一系列事件和问题将发生彻底的变化。

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).
