Economy and Security Landscape of Northeast Asia: Implications for Danish Interests

Tuesday, December 1, 2015 - 15:00 to 17:00

Professor Jong Kun Choi of Yonsei Unversity in Seoul, Korea will give a talk on how Northeast Asia, a sub-region of East Asia, made up of Two Koreas, Japan and China, maintains its sustaining economic development despite lingering security challenges such as North Korea’s nuclear challenges, sporadic diplomatic standoffs caused by territorial and maritime disputes, and hostile nationalism.

Dr. Choi will argue that the three core states of East Asia have achieved a very high degree of economic interdependence from which their economic development is regenerated. He will demonstrate new trade portfolio data and social interactions among the three states and provide security implications. Dr. Choi will provide insights on what this means for the Nordic states.

Wine and canapés will be served after the talk.

The event is organised by Asia House and NIAS - Nordic Institite of Asian Studies, participation is free.

Venue: Asia House, Indiakaj 16, 2100 Copenhagen 

Registration before 27 November
