The U.S. “Pivot to Asia”: Where We Are and How Asians Have Responded
Michael H. Armacost, Ph. D., Author; Professor; Former U.S. Ambassador to Japan and the Philippines; Shorenstein Distinguished Fellow, Stanford University
Nearly two years ago, the Obama administration declared its “pivot to Asia” to rebalance its foreign policy. Professor Armacost will give us a progress report. How has this declaratory policy translated into operational arrangements? Critics have complained that too much attention has been devoted to its military dimensions and its anti-Chinese overtones. These and other criticisms will be examined.
