[2-B] Overcoming Geopolitical Gap in Northeast Asia: Toward a New Politics of Trust and Harmony|지정학을 넘어서: 신뢰와 화합의 새로운동북아 정치를 향하어

[East Asia Foundation]

Northeast Asia faces a new strategic environment with the rise of China, normalizing Japan, and nuclear-developing North Korea. The paradox of increasing conflicts despite deepening socioeconomic interdependence runs through the region. Rather than tightening cooperation among nations in the region, geopolitical gaps are widening. How to cope with these challenges constitutes major concerns of member countries in the region. This panel discusses the hurdles and opportunities of overcoming geopolitical gap in Northeast Asia with a view to establishing a new politics of harmony and trust.

동북아는 중국의 부상, 정상국가화하는 일본, 핵 무장 중인 북한 등 새로운 전략적 환경에 직면하고 있습니다. 역내 경제적 사회적 상호의존성이 심화됨에도 불구하고 분쟁은 증가하는 역설적 상황이 전개되고 있습니다. 역내 국가 간 협력을 증진하기보다는 지정학적 괴리가 증대되고 있습니다. 이러한 도전적 과제에 어떻게 대처해야 할지가 현재 역내 국가들의 주요 관심사입니다. 이 세션은 동북아에서 화합과 신뢰의 새로운 정치를 확립하기 위해 어떻게 하면 지정학적 괴리를 극복할 수 있는지 그 기회와 방해요인들을 논의합니다.
