———————————-

The 2016 election campaign has revealed mounting concern and skepticism about American foreign policy commitments towards Asia, including signals towards anti-globalization and isolationism. Concerns have been raised about free trade and investment, the rise of China, territorial disputes, nuclear proliferation, and America’s presence in Afghanistan. The Asia Foundation addresses these topics and more in its upcoming policy report, “Asian Views on America’s Role in Asia,” to be released on November 15, 2016. The report, which is a culmination of a series of closed-door, high-level working group meetings held in Seoul, Bangkok, Colombo, and New York, presents policy recommendations for the incoming administration on issues most important to three sub-regions of Northeast Asia, South Asia, and Southeast Asia.

Please join us for a conversation with the chairs of these regional working groups as well as prominent academic minds from the New York area, focusing on the report, and the implications for U.S. foreign policy in Asia in the years ahead.
