Preserving the Long Peace in AsiaVIEW EVENT DETAILS
The Institutional Building Blocks of Long-Term Security
Amidst the rapid change and uncertainty of the 21st century, a key question facing Asia’s leaders is whether the region will be able to maintain the unprecedented economic growth and peace it has enjoyed for the past 70 years. Given growing concerns about a rising China, a dangerous North Korea, and a potentially less engaged United States, the region’s future is unclear.
Join the Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) and Peking University for this discussion on regional security challenges and the role regional institutions could play in preventing upheaval or crisis in Asia. This event will feature ASPI President Kevin Rudd discussing a new report on the subject titled, Preserving the Long Peace in Asia: The Institutional Building Blocks of Long-Term Regional Security.
The Hon. Kevin Rudd is President of the Asia Society Policy Institute. He served as Australia’s 26th Prime Minister and as Foreign Minister. He is a Distinguished Fellow at Chatham House in London, a Distinguished Statesman with the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, and a Distinguished Fellow at the Paulson Institute in Chicago. He is proficient in Mandarin Chinese and co-chairs the China Global Affairs Council of the World Economic Forum.
