Conference Theme: Limits of a Pacific Century

The littoral states of the Pacific and their neighbors have emphasized the idea of a Pacific Century. The two great powers have their own views. China has envisioned a harmonious regionalism and the USA has espoused and pursued similar and competing concepts, as well as alternatives such as the Trans-Pacific partnership. In addition, lesser nation-states of the region have espoused their unique visions and interests in a Pacific Century. How do the individual states and/or economies conceive the Pacific Century? What are the opportunities and how may they be seized? Are there any unresolved or emerging issues which constrain the visions? Simply—what are the limits of a Pacific Century?

With a China focus, exemplar issues that may be considered include the overt extension of Chinese maritime attentions into the East China Sea, South China Sea, and Indian Ocean; new visions of bilateral, regional or multilateral relations; new fields of interaction across the playing fields—of, for example, global economies, technology and even space; new theoretical concepts and critiques; the differing roles of great, middle or small powers; and the pace, place and conceptions of development and democracy with regard to security, stability and other political and economic goods. Our 2012 theme—Limits of a Pacific Century—looks to synthesise and generate multi-disciplinary reviews and analyses. What are your ideas? Share and publish them through the East Asia Security Symposium and Conference!

本年度会议的主题为“亚太世纪的局限”。“亚太世纪”已成为亚太地区国家、甚至更广泛地区国家的一个共有的概念。中国对此有它的“和谐世界”的设想,美国用经济上的“跨太平洋伙伴关系协议”来统合,其他国家也有自己的想法。那么亚太世纪究竟意味着哪些机遇,它的局限又在哪里,是本届会议的所关心的。同时,其他与中国有关的研究也欢迎参与!希望您与我们分享您的研究想法,并通过我们这个平台发表您的文章!!
