The Future of the U.S.-ROK Alliance
WATCH VIDEO OF THE EVENT BELOW
The world is undergoing epochal change, and much of this change is driven by transformations in East Asia, particularly the rise of China as a major military, economic, and technological power. In recent years, Washington and Beijing have pursued ideological, nationalistic policies, forcing U.S. allies in East Asia to balance its security relations with the United States and economic ties with China. What are the lessons learned from the 2017 deployment of the anti-missile system, known as Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD)? How can Washington and Seoul better cooperate to bolster the alliance and U.S. allies’ resilience to economic coercion and undue political influence, while also ensuring peaceful and constructive relations with Beijing?
Join the Quincy Institute and South Korea-based think tank Sejong Institute at our webinar on U.S.-ROK bilateral relations in an era of heightened competition between the United States and China. Panelists are former Deputy Minister for Planning and Coordination at the Ministry of National Defense Jungsup Kim, Professor at Ajou University Heung-Kyu Kim, Director of East Asia Program at the Quincy Institute Michael D. Swaine, and Senior Research Fellow on East Asia Jessica J. Lee. Jung-Yeop Woo, Research Fellow at the Sejong Institute, will moderate this timely discussion.
The discussion will take place on Tuesday, December 1, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM EST.
