Discussion with Emanuel Pastreich, president of the Asia Institute
On the seventieth anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War, an event that transformed the United States role in East Asia and ushered in both the US-ROK and US-Japan alliances, the world is going through profound shifts that are both rewriting the definition of security and transforming the position of both the Republic of Korea and Japan in the international community.
Emanuel Pastreich, the president of the Asia Institute, is the most prominent American working on Korean and Japanese issues in East Asia who has spent the last 25 years working on Korean and Japanese affairs. He will present his insights on what the future offers for the Republic of Korea and for the United States, and also suggests how the two alliances need to transform in order to meet upcoming challenges.
Emanuel Pastreich serves as the president of the Asia Institute (asia-institute.org), a think tank that builds bridges between individuals in Asia and around the world to respond to the greatest challenges of our time: climate change, the impact of technological change on human society, the rapidly shifting nature of international relations and the spread of a culture of anti-intellectualism.
The Asia Institute has offices in Washington D.C., Seoul (Republic of Korea), Hanoi (Vietnam) and Tokyo (Japan).
