Arne Westad – What Will the Trump Presidency Mean for Asia?
Mon 24 April 2017, 17:15 – 19:00 BST
Speaker: Professor Odd Arne Westad (Harvard University)
Chair: Eirini Karamouzi (University of Sheffield)
The election of Donald Trump as president signals a profound change in US foreign relations. Basic US approaches to the world, in place since at least 1945, seem to be shifting, as are traditional concepts of friends and enemies.
In this lecture, Professor Arne Westad of Harvard University asks what the reactions to the Trump presidency are likely to be in eastern Asia and whether we are facing a fundamental power shift in the region. He will also discuss how the current situation compares with earlier cases of dramatic global change.
