The Asia Pacific in 2014 - Etel Solingen
The world's largest economies border the Pacific, but territorial claims, trade disputes, military moves, and other issues have many worried. A panel of experts discuss the policies and practices of key actors, how those are perceived, and the current and potential role of multilateral organizations in reducing tension, mediating disputes and promoting stability.
Prof. Solingen holds the Thomas T. and Elizabeth C. Tierney Chair in Peace Studies at the University of California, Irvine. She has previously been a Chancellor's Professor and is the immediate past president of the International Studies Association. The author of numerous works, her Nuclear Logics: Contrasting Paths in East Asia and the Middle East received the APSA's Woodrow Wilson Foundation Award for best book and the APSA's Robert Jervis and Paul Schroeder Award. Other works include Regional Orders at Century's Dawn: Global and Domestic Influences on Grand Strategy.
