Regionalism in East Asia

East Asia - which includes China and Japan - is one of the world's most powerful economic regions, and hence developments in its regionalism will have significant impacts on the global system. Christopher Dent’s presentation particularly focuses on very recent trends in East Asian regionalism and considers what future directions it might take, and how this might affect those both inside and outside the region.

Christopher Dent is Professor of East Asia’s International Political Economy at the University of Leeds. He has published ten books, the latest being China and Africa Development Relations (editor, London: Routledge, forthcoming 2010), East Asian Regionalism (London: Routledge, 2008) and China, Japan and Regional Leadership in East Asia (editor, Cheltenham: Edward Elgar, 2008). He is also author of around 60 academic articles and other papers. He has acted as a consultant advisor to the British, Australian, Chilean and United States Governments, and European Commission on trade issues, as well an invited speaker at conferences and other events in Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Oceania. Christopher Dent is also an Expert (Brains Trust) member of the Evian Group.
