Conversation with Kurt Campbell: The U.S. and Asia - A Status Report
USCI Senior Fellow Mike Chinoy interviews Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Kurt Campbell on the Obama Administration's refocusing on the Asia-Pacific region.
Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs is the top Asia hand in the Obama administration. He is one of the architects of the "Pivot", the administration's effort to move the center of gravity of American foreign policy to the Asia-Pacific. He has been a key interlocutor with China at a time of increasingly strained relations between Washington and Beijing, and has also been deeply involved in efforts to address mounting regional tensions, most notably in the East China Sea and South China Sea, fueled by nationalistic passions in China, Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia. He sat down with USC U.S.-China Institute Senior Fellow Mike Chinoy to discuss U.S. policy and the current situation in Asia.
This interview is also available on the USCI YouTube channel.
