EVENT: China-Russia Friendship – Any Limits?
Join Japanese and American professors on March 10 as they examine the tensions and challenges arising in the Indo-Pacific region, including the China-Russia entente and the impact of the Ukraine crisis.
The Crossley Center for Public Opinion Research and the Consulate-General of Japan in Denver are continuing their program of bringing Japanese foreign policy experts together with their counterparts at the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies.
In a panel moderated by Floyd Ciruli, Director of the Crossley Center, the participants are:
- Akiko Fukushima – Senior Fellow of Tokyo Foundation for Policy Research
- Tsuneo Watanabe – Senior Fellow of Sasakawa Peace Foundation
- Suisheng Zhao – Professor, Director of the Center for China-U.S. Cooperation
Some of the questions that will be considered:
- What does the China-Russia pact mean for the Indo-Pacific?
- Does Ukraine and the Western response harm or strengthen Taiwan’s security and independence?
- North Korea has started missile tests again. What is the strategy for diplomacy and deterrence after the Trump administration?
- President Xi Jinping is likely to win another term. What does it mean for diplomacy and security in the Indo-Pacific?
