Scott Snyder, Center for U.S.-Korea Policy Director and Senior Associate at The Asia Foundation, will discuss the findings of his new book, China’s Rise and the Two Koreas: Politics, Economics, Security, which explores the transformation of the Sino-South Korean relationship since the early 1990s. By assessing the strategic significance of recent developments in China’s relationship with both North and South Korea and the likely consequences for U.S. and Japanese influence in the region, this meticulous study lends important context to critical debates regarding China’s foreign policy, Northeast Asian security, and international relations more broadly.

David Lampton, George and Sadie Hyman Professor of China Studies and Director of the China Studies Program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, will provide comments.

Copies of China’s Rise and the Two Koreas will be available for purchase.
