Research visit to Singapore

This week I will be conducting a visit to Singapore to work on a Special Issue on “Power, Narratives, and the role of third parties: Understanding Power (Shift) in East Asia” for Asian Perspective with my RSIS co-guest editor Dr Li Mingjiang. This issue is part of Prof. Linus Hagström and my Power Shift in East Asia project funded by the Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation.

I will also be visiting, among others, the East Asia Institute at National University of Singapore and the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS).

Speaking on North Korea and East Asian Security

Today I spoke at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs on North Korea and East Asian Security – see http://www.ui.se/evenemang/north-korea-and-east-asian-security. I was telling the story about why North Korea survives despite unprecedented international sanctions and what to do about the security situation on the Korean Peninsula.

What should a European Strategy towards East Asia look like?

As part of the Towards European Global Strategy at the Swedish Institute of International Affairs I wrote a paper on what should a European Strategy towards East Asia look like. The space given to Asia in the final report may have been limited, but Asia is cruial for Europe as we are in the process of a Global Power Shift from the West to the East. I think my paper give some pointers what our strategy should look like.
