EASG Seminar with Dr. June Park

Dr. June Park is a 2021-22 Fung Global Fellow of the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies at Princeton University. In this seminar, Dr. Park discusses work related to her upcoming book DIGITAL TRADE WARS & CURRENCY CONFLICT: China, South Korea and Japan’s Responses to U.S. Protectionism since COVID-19. Using a framework of institutional variance, it investigates why the three countries have not acted the same upon encountering US protectionism pre- and post-COVID-19 and offers a mechanism for predicting policy moves. The seminar specifically focuses on how supply chains have been employed in competition between the US and China, and more locally between Japan and South Korea.

This event will be relevant to colleagues interested in the Asia-Pacific; regions and regionalisation; and international political economy. It is part of the East Asia Study Group (EASG) Seminar Series.
