Uneasy Neighbors: Legacies and Challenges in 21st-Century East Asia. July 8-14, 2018. Application deadline: Monday, March 19, 2018.
How and why are the nations of East Asia such uneasy neighbors? This institute will examine the recent past, present, and future of East Asian regional relations, considering China, Japan, Taiwan, and the Koreas. The program will lay the groundwork for current issues by deconstructing the region's "history problem"-the enduring legacies and hotly contested national narratives of 20th-century conflict. Participants will then focus on current topics-national strategies and their regional impact, territorial disputes, economic cooperation and rivalries, the environment, demographics-and prospects for the East Asian regional order of the future. The institute will be held on the CU Boulder campus.
