Asia Roundtable: Focal Points for the Future

Staff: Jerome A. Cohen, Adjunct Senior Fellow for Asia Studies
February 1, 1997 - June 1, 1998

Asia is an increasingly important center of world power. With Hong Kong reverting to Chinese rule, tensions between North and South Korea increasing, and the United States and Japan reinvigorating their alliance, relations between the United States and Asia will be undergoing change. Individual sessions of the Roundtable examined the implications of these changes in a sociopolitical, economic, and security framework.
