The US Presidential Elections and Asia Policy


Uselections Asiapolicy Graphic

Elections influence foreign policy, either by reinforcing the current trajectory or prompting course corrections by a new administration. Beijing's intimidation in Hong Kong, along the Indian border, in the South China Sea, and toward Taiwan have helped accelerate a rapid deterioration in relations with its neighbors.

As Washington has pushed back against Beijing, Asian capitals from New Delhi to Hanoi to Taipei are becoming increasingly receptive to a stronger US presence in the region. Meanwhile, calls for economic “decoupling” between the US and China have catalyzed the shift of production supply lines from China into other Asian countries.

To discuss US Asia policy and the US presidential election this November, the Kellogg Institute and the New York University Center for Global Affairs will host a panel of distinguished scholars:

Kevin Chen, Chief Economist of Horizon Financial;  Adjunct Associate Professor at NYUSPS Center for Global Affairs

Joshua Eisenman, Associate Professor of Global Affairs at University of Notre Dame; Faculty Fellow at the Liu Institute

Rebecca Karl, Professor of History at New York University

Ankit Panda, Editor-at-Large at the Diplomat; Director of Research for Diplomat Risk Intelligence

Moderator: Sean King MBA '99, Senior Vice President and East Asia specialist for Park Strategies and Affiliated Scholar with the Liu Institute

Presented by the Center for Global Affairs at New York University and the Kellogg Institute for International Studies at the University of Notre Dame, with cosponsorship by the Notre Dame Club of New York City and promotional support from the Keough School for Global Affairs and the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies.
