Russia's Engagement in Asia: the Russian Far East and Beyond

Sat, June 25, 10:30am to 12:20pm, Shikokan (SK), Floor: 1F, 120

Session Submission Type: Organized Panel Proposal Application


Russia's "pivot to the East" since the 1990s is a clear manifestation of the nation's growing interest in Asia but the Asian neighbors' response has been varied and complex. The panel will examine the evolving forms and levels of Russia's engagement with Northeast Asian countries (particularly Japan, China, and South Korea), the political, strategic, and economic interests informing that engagement, the role of the Russian Far East (considered by the neighboring countries as a legitimate and integral part of Northeast Asia), and implications for the political, security, and economic landscape of the region.
