The Obama administration’s proposed “Pivot” to Asia has had to compete for attention amid numerous other policy challenges. The domestic debates over healthcare reform and the budget have required a great deal of the administration’s attention, while the responses to Syria’s civil war and Iran’s nuclear program have occupied much of the U.S.’s diplomatic focus. At the same time, tensions continue to rise throughout East Asia as territorial disputes and nationalistic sentiments hamper dialog between the major regional powers. Joseph Nye, University Distinguished Service Professor, Harvard University, and former Dean at the Kennedy School of Government, examines the progress being made in America’s “rebalance” towards Asia, paying special attention to American policy toward China and Japan.
