2018 was the year of changes in East Asia. Can 2019 be the year for cooperation and integration?
We are living in an era of non-cooperation and uncertainty - Brexit, US’ withdrawal from the TPP, US-China trade war, South Korea and North Korea are far yet to have actual progression, and continuous historical disputes between neighbouring countries still exist. It is the time where cooperation between countries is desperately needed.
Could cooperation in East Asia, the region which consists of more than 20% of the world’s economy and population, be the new driver of the world economy? How could we cooperate to solve and improve the current societal issues? What are the factors that are hindering possible partnership and how can we overcome?
Concerned about the current economic, political and societal issues in East Asia, LSE SU Korea Future Forum, China Development Society and Japan Society have come together to co-organise the 2019 LSE SU East Asia Forum with the support of LSE Institute of Global Affairs. The forum will comprehensively discuss the new challenges that East Asia is facing and how East Asian countries will potentially cooperate together in order to tackle the challenges.
The topics that will be covered by panellists and keynote speakers are:
- Economy: “East Asia with AIIB and BRI: Opportunities or Risks?”.
- North Korea: “Causes and Impacts of North Korea’s changed stance”.
- History: “The Contested History: The Uncertain Path to Reconciliation”.
- Environment: “Climate Change in East Asia: The Opportunities of Green Technologies".
- Gender: “#Metoo Movement in East Asia”.

Whilst we are hosting this listing, LSE Events does not take responsibility for the running and administration of this event. While we take responsible measures to ensure accurate informaton is given here (for instance by checking that the room has been booked) this event is ultimately the responsibility of the organisation presenting the event.
