Reconciliation through Dialogue:
Territorial Dispute and Reconciliation Challenges in East Asia
Over 75 years after the end of World War II, unfinished postwar reconciliation continues to haunt relations between East Asian nations. The outcome of the Pacific War still pervades in defining diplomatic, security, economic, and social ties within Asia, and U.S. relations with countries across the region. In fact, the memory of war has actually led to increased tensions in Asia at a time when there is growing competition and potential conflict among powers, large and small. This program includes a series of conflict resolution dialogues involving leading scholars from China, Japan, Korea and United States and the publication of joint research focused on the reconciliation challenges in East Asia.
