Throughout 2013, East Asia remained in focus for several reasons such as China’s increasing belligerence in the South China sea vis-à-vis Japan and South Korea; Japan’s shift towards a more aggressive posturing; the nuclear threat emanating from North Korea; and the U.S. pivot to East Asia, to name a few. 2014 will witness several interesting developments that will define the nature of relationships between the countries in the region, bilaterally and multilaterally. Given India’s position as an emerging power, New Delhi will undoubtedly be fielded by many from the region. What must India expect from region, and more importantly, how must it seek to find a balance between its own national interests and the unfolding realities of the region?

Addressing these issues at the ‘IPCS Strategic Review: Contemporary East Asia’ meeting, panellists Ambassador Skand Tayal, Jayadeva Ranade, Dr. Srabani Roy Chowdhury and Dr. Sandip Mishra discussed issues regarding the Korean Peninsula, India-Japan collaboration, India-China relations, Korea-Japan and the changing dynamics in East Asia, focussing on intra and extra-regional relations vis-à-vis China, Japan and the Koreas. The interactive session saw questions on the nature of effect war-time histories of East Asian nations have in present-day dealings; the legitimacy as well as the implications of a perceived revival of Japanese offensive military aggression; and the role India can and/or must play given then exponential shifts in posturing by East Asian nations.
