For the United States, Asia today represents a sometimes confusing mix of risks and opportunities. The risks are often more evident - North Korea's decision to test nuclear weapons, the growing tensions between Japan and China over both their past and their future, and threats to democracy and security in Southeast Asia. But there are also great opportunities for the United States in Asia: the powerful wave of economic growth fueled by market reforms in China and India, a reviving Japan, and the movement toward greater regional integration. Shorenstein APARC associate director for research Daniel Sneider led a conversation on these risks and opportunities with Shorenstein APARC scholars Michael Armacost, Gi-Wook Shin, and Don Emmerson.
