Professor Rozman's introductory comments at the Roundtable will centre on the dynamics of the search for regionalism in East Asia and the driving forces of China's assertiveness. Assessing Chinese writings on regionalism in 2009-11 in contrast to those of Japan and South Korea, Rozman will cover the East Asian Summit, ASEAN + 3, the Six-Party Talks, and trilateralism in Northeast Asia.

Gilbert Rozman is Musgrave Professor of Sociology at Princeton University. His current research focuses on national identities in China, Japan, Russia, and South Korea, and how they shape bilateral trust and evolving relations in the region.
