Trump’s Indo-Pacific Strategy & the ASEAN and Chinese Responses

  • 420 W 118th St Room 918 (map)

The Trump administration has articulated a ‘free and open Indo-Pacific’ strategy as the new modus operandi for the United States's policy on Asia, but is it a useful organizing concept? Please join Dr. Amy Searight, Senior Advisor and Director of the Southeast Asia Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, for a discussion of the Trump administration’s ‘free and open Indo-Pacific” and the Southeast Asian response. Dr. Andrew Nathan will provide a Chinese view of the ‘free and open Indo-Pacific” strategy in promises to be a stimulating discussion of an important topic. Acting as the moderator for the event will be Dr. Ann Marie Murphy of Seton Hall University.
