Storm in Turquoise Waters: Southeast Asia's Responses to the South China Sea Tension
Dr. Chyungly Lee, National Chengchi University, Taiwan
Wednesday, Feb. 20, 4 p.m.
Jepson Hall, Room 109

Lately the seemingly tranquil, commercially busy, and resource-rich South China Sea has become an arena for geopolitical and geoeconomic competition. China’s expansive territorial claims and increasingly assertive activities, America’s strategic “pivot” to Asia under Obama, and the smaller Southeast Asian nations’ maneuvers have tested competing international norms and turned the region into a potential flashpoint. Join us for a prescient analysis by our visiting international scholar Dr. Chyungly Lee, Associate Research Fellow and Associate Professor from National Chengchi University, UR’s partner institution in Taiwan. Free and open to the public, this event is cosponsored by the Office of International Education and the School of Arts and Sciences.
