Panel discussion to explore future of U.S.-Asia policy

What is the future of U.S.-Asia policy under a Trump administration? A panel of distinguished experts will explore this question during an upcoming discussion sponsored by the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy.

Moderated by Dr. Iskander Rehman, senior fellow at the Pell Center, the panel discussion will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 21 in the Bazarsky Lecture Hall.

The panelists will discuss issues such as the threats posed to freedom of navigation in the Asian maritime commons, the future of the U.S.-India relationship, and perceptions of the new U.S. administration and of its Asia policy from different Asian capitals, including Beijing. The presentations will be followed by a short question-and-answer session with the audience.

Panelists include:

  • Isaac Stone Fish, senior fellow, Asia Society
  • Dr. Tanvi Madan, director of the India Project, Brookings Institution
  • Jeff Smith, director of Asian security programs, American Foreign Policy Council
