Asia’s transformation presents challenges and opportunities at international, regional, and domestic levels. A key to a peaceful, prosperous Asia in the 21st century is good relations between the United States and China. But other challenges exist: nuclear proliferation, maritime security, terrorism, environmental degradation, natural disasters, food security, cyber-security, and social and gender inequality, among others. Social transformation is outpacing political and institutional reform in many Asian countries, and the widening gap between state and society is a potent force for change. How will Asians address these challenges over the next one to two decades? What role are Asian women playing in this transformation? How should the United States help Asian societies benefit from their emerging future? With 60 percent of the world’s youth living in Asia, these questions will have significant ramifications for future economic growth, technological innovation, and political development in the region.

On October 26th, The Asia Foundation will host participants of the Foundation’s quadrennial Asian Views on America’s Role in Asia project. Please join us as they discuss these and other pressing questions about challenges and opportunities facing Northeast, Southeast, and South Asia.
