The US Presidential Elections and Asia Policy

Elections influence foreign policy, either by reinforcing the current trajectory or prompting course corrections by a new administration. Beijing's intimidation in Hong Kong, along the Indian border, in the South China Sea, and towards Taiwan have helped accelerate a rapid deterioration in relations with its neighbors. As Washington has pushed back against Beijing, Asian capitals from New Delhi to Hanoi to Taipei are becoming increasingly receptive to a stronger US presence in the region. Meanwhile, calls for economic "decoupling" between the US and China have catalyzed the shift of production supply lines from China into other Asian countries.

To discuss these and other pressing questions related to US Asia policy in the wake of the US presidential election this November, the Kellogg Institute at Notre Dame and the NYUSPS Center for Global Affairs will host a panel of distinguished scholars including:

KEVIN CHEN, Chief Economist of Horizon Financial; Adjunct Associate Professor, NYUSPS Center for Global Affairs

JOSHUA EISENMAN, Associate Professor of Global Affairs, University of Notre Dame; Faculty Fellow at the Kellogg Institute

REBECCA KARL, Professor of History, New York University

ANKIT PANDA, Editor-at-Large, The Diplomat; Director of Research, Diplomat Risk Intelligence

Moderator:

SEAN KING, Senior Vice President (East Asia specialist) for Park Strategies; Affiliated Scholar, Liu Institute, University of Notre Dame

Presented by the Center for Global Affairs at New York University and the Kellogg Institute for International Studies at the University of Notre Dame, with co-sponsorship by the Notre Dame Club of New York City and promotional support from the Keough School for Global Affairs and the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies.
