The Asia Pacific in 2014 - Stanley Rosen
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. Rosen has taught political science at USC since 1979. He's headed the East Asian Studies Center and is a member of the US-China Institute's executive committee. His courses range from Chinese politics and Chinese film to socio-political change in East Asian societies. He's published numerous books and articles, including Chinese Politics: State, Society and the Market (co-edited with Peter Hays Gries) and Art, Politics and Commerce in Chinese Cinema (co-edited with Ying Zhu). Other works look the Cultural Revolution, the Chinese legal system, public opinion, youth, gender, and human rights. He is co-editor of Chinese Education and Society.
