"China's Korea Problem," a talk by Professor Ren Xiao of Fudan University

Tue, November 1, 2016 | SRH 3.122

12:15 PM - 1:30 PM

Co-sponsored by the Center for East Asian Studies and the LBJ School, Professor Ren Xiao of Fudan University will give a talk on “China’s Korea Problem."  

Over the last decade China has struggled to identify an effective Korea policy. Throughout history China has repeatedly engaged in political and military conflicts in Korea. Chinese leaders want to avoid another Korean war and seek a denuclearized peninsula. However, North Korea's nuclear and missile development programs have compelled Chinese leaders to rethink their approach. Dr. Ren will discuss China's policy options and how the country might respond to this growing threat to regional peace and stability. 


Professor Ren specializes in Korean studies and Chinese diplomacy, and has authored a number of books and articles in Chinese and English.
