US National Security Policy in the Asia-Pacific Region

December 15, 2006 | 12:00 AM
House Capitol, Room HC 8

Kurt M. Campbell, senior vice president, Henry A. Kissinger Chair in National Security, and director of the International Security Program at CSIS,  discuss policy options to address U.S. national security challenges in the Asia-Pacific region.  With the rise of China, an emboldened nuclear North Korea, and the security normalization of Japan, the Asia-Pacific region presents increasingly dynamic and complex security challenges.  What are the implications for American policy toward the Asia-Pacific region in the 21st Century? How will the rise of China and India effect relations with the U.S.? Dr. Campbell will also discuss his thoughts on the "twin challenges" for U.S. national security policy: balancing America's role in the Middle East with the challenges she faces in Asia.
