Stephen A. Orlins, President, National Committee on U.S.-China Relations

The United States balances a pair of critical relationships in East Asia–its long-standing alliance with Japan and a deepening relationship with China. Tensions between China and Japan present a challenge for the U.S. in effectively managing relations with these two countries and in promoting interests in East Asia. Over the past several months, the Center for Naval Analyses, Institute for Defense Analyses, National Defense University and Pacific Forum CSIS have convened a working group of specialists to examine how history, nationalism, domestic politics and economics have affected Sino-Japanese relations and to consider the implications for U.S. policy. Three participants in the Sino-Japanese Rivalry Project, Chairman James Kelly, Michael McDevitt and Alan Romberg, present some of the working group’s findings in a joint Japan Society-National Committee on U.S.-China Relations program.
