Resumo da palestra

The trilateral relationship among China, Japan and the United States has generally been stable, and it explained the regional order in East Asia since the 1970s. The trilateral relationship has been stabilized primarily by the stability of the US-China and US-Japan relations, and secondly by the fact that American preponderance has been maintained and the commitment to Asia is certain, with the remaining two parties formulating strategies on the basis of that balance of power. Although Japan-China relations have been repeatedly confronted and approached politically over time, they have not shaken the trilateral relationship to that extent. Also, in the area of regionalism, the role of the United States has gradually become more important and contributed to the stability of order. Now, however, the fundamental conditions of the trilateral relationship are changing because of a shift in the balance of power, a loss of confidence on American diplomacy, and the overwhelming importance of the Chinese economy. Relations between the United States and China are described as an era of competition, or as an era of confrontation. How will a change in the relationship between Japan, the United States and China affect the order of Asia? What does good Japan-China relations mean? Is the Japan-U.S. relationship still strong?
