“Conflict Patterns in Northeast Asia with Katrin Fraser Katz”
In this installment, Katrin Fraser-Katz, former White House NSC Director for Japan, Korea, and Oceanic Affairs, gives offers an overview of her recent work on Northeast Asia’s island disputes, particularly the Dokdo/Takeshima dispute between Korea and Japan and the Senkaku/Diaoyu dispute between Japan and China. She will explore recent patterns of contained conflict in these disputes, future prospects for change, and possible implications beyond the region. Ms. Katz will also discuss her experience working on these disputes in the policy sphere for students interested in working in policy and the government. A light lunch will be served. Ms. Katz serves as an Adjunct Fellow for the Korea Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). Registration is required for this event.
