    Title: Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 38: Asia’s Reckoning: China, Japan, and the Fate of US Power in the Pacific Century
    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: China’s rise to power has been accompanied by its increased assertiveness in Asia. As it has established itself as the dominant power in the region, Chinese ambitions have often clashed with interests of other powers, especially Japan. A conflict in Asia has the potential to reverberate across the world today since China and Japan are the fulcrum of international trade. The pragmatism of the two Asian giants means that the possibility of an armed conflict occurring is low. However, recent escalation of tensions especially over the Senkaku/Diaoyudao Islands means that a conflict is likely now more than ever. What does this entail for the US role in the region? Richard McGregor, journalist and a former visiting scholar at the Sigur Center for Asian Studies discusses the bilateral history of China and Japan and addresses the question of the US role in light of the changing dynamics in the region in his new book Asia’s Reckoning: China, Japan and the Fate of US Power in the Pacific Century.

    Title: Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 39: Energy Security in Asia and Eurasia: Are States Choosing Nationalism or Globalism?
    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: Asia’s need for energy resources has sparked new debates involving energy security within rising powers in the region. Increased economic development has pushed these countries to consider new strategies for energy procurement in the 21st century. Key Asian nations have invested in renewable energy sources in an effort to diversify their energy assets as well as to fuel their expansion in the coming years. But traditional sources for energy, mainly petroleum, are still tremendously important. Some analysts fear energy conflicts could develop out of countries’ desires to lock down supplies of petroleum outside of Asia.

    Title: Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 15: Taiwan and the Diaoyutai Islands: Historical and Regional Perspectives
    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: A relatively small chain of islands in the East China Sea has been the focal point of potential maritime conflict between Taiwan (R.O.C.), China (P.R.C.), and Japan for several decades, with escalating rhetoric in recent years. Known to Taiwan as the Diaoyutai, to China as the Diaoyu and to Japan as the Senkaku islands, this dispute was discussed at a Taiwan Roundtable entitled "Taiwan and the Diaoyutai Islands: Historical and Regional Perspectives" held by the Sigur Center for Asian Studies on November 20, 2012. Experts on the history and contemporary international affairs of East Asia met to offer their insights on the background and future implications of the conflict over this disputed territory.

  4. Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 12: The Okinawa Question and the US-Japan Alliance: Factoring in Japanese Domestic Politics and Debates [Download]

    Title: Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 12: The Okinawa Question and the US-Japan Alliance: Factoring in Japanese Domestic Politics and Debates
    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: This Asia Report is based on "The Okinawa Question: Regional Security, the US-Japan Alliance, and Futenma," a conference held on September 19, 2011 at the Elliott School of International Affairs and co-sponsored by the Sigur Center for Asian Studies and The Nansai Shoto Industrial Advancement. Since Yoshihiko Noda took office as Prime Minister of Japan two months ago, there appears to be some possibility that the United States and Japan will be able to make progress on the stalled issue of relocating the U.S. Marine Corps Futenma Air Station in Okinawa prefecture. However, even cautious optimism should be tempered by the reality of domestic politics in Japan and a thorough consideration of Japan's overall strategic thinking. Noda has made specific gestures expressing an intent to honor the U.S.-Japan agreement to relocate the Futenma base from densely populated Ginowan to the Henoko district of Nago City in northeastern Okinawa, where a new on-shore facility would be built. To win political support from Okinawans, he announced in late September that his government would remove the conditions currently attached to development subsidies to the prefecture. In October, he told visiting U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta that the government would submit an environmental impact assessment report to Okinawa prefecture by the end of this year, which would formally start a legal process whereby the Okinawa government is required to respond within 90 days. From Washington's perspective, these moves may indicate some longawaited momentum on the Futenma issue.

    Title: Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 10: After the 3/11 Catastrophe: Whither the Japanese Peace State?
    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: Over the past several years, foreign policy circles both inside and outside Japan have been anxious to determine whether Japan should or would develop new strategies to deal with a changing security environment in Asia. The catastrophic impact of the 3/11 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster has only heightened the sense of anxiety over Japan’s future direction. At a time of great uncertainty about Japan’s future and the implications for its foreign policy, one might instead look to Japan’s national identity for signs of continuity and consistency.

    Title: Sigur Center Asia Report, Issue 9: A Comparative Analysis of Identity and Regional Cooperation in Asia
    Author: Sigur Center for Asian Studies
    Description: What are the prospects for the development of an Asian regional community? How might identity influence the formation of that community? Will this emerging community include or exclude the United States? In May 2010, a group of preeminent scholars from the United States, Japan, China, South Korea and India gathered in Beijing at a conference organized by the Sigur Center for Asian Studies and China Foreign Affairs University to discuss the influence of identity on the foreign policy of Japan, China, South Korea and India, as well as the impact of identity on regional cooperation.
