Asia Beyond the Headlines Seminar Series

In fall 2017, the Asia Center inaugurated Asia Beyond the Headlines, a new seminar series focused on urgent contemporary issues that cut across Asia. In the first Asia Beyond the Headlines seminar, One Belt/One Road in Historical and Global Context, leading scholars put China’s Belt and Road Initiative in the context of analogous programs that have changed human history. This event was followed by An Alternate View of the North Korea-U.S. Relationship, a panel that included the Honorable Donald P. Gregg, former Ambassador to the Republic of Korea.  Other Asia Beyond the Headlines seminars during the 2017-2018 academic year focused on Responses to the Rohingya Refugee Crisis; and Forced Migration in South Asia: Past and Present.

Fall 2018 Asia Beyond the Headlines seminars included "The Complex India-China Strategic Relationship: Can the Two Asian Powers Rise Peacefully," "Press Freedoms in Asia: Perspectives from China, Myanmar, and Thailand," "Operation Tomodachi: Process and Recommendations--the U.S.-Japan Alliance After the Fukishima Nuclear Accident," "Constitutional Revision in Japanese Politics Today," and "Engaging North Korea: What Are the Current Signposts Telling Us?"
