East Asia has experienced dynamic economic growth alongside geopolitical tensions. President Trump’s more transactional approach to alliances and talk of decoupling from China have unsettled the region. From Sino-Japanese rivalry to North Korea’s nuclear programme and trade/historical disputes between South Korea and Japan, this session brings together researchers from the Universities of Cambridge and Tokyo to exchange views at a time of uncertainty for the region and present ongoing projects on regional politics.
