The Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands, administered by Japan but claimed by China, have long been a sticking point in Sino-Japanese relations. The historical dispute flared up again this year, as major rioting in China has attracted the attention of the international community. Join us for a seminar in which we discuss the political, economic, and naval security implications of the Senkaku/Diaoyu dispute. Speakers: Professor Michael Corgan (BU - International Relations), Professor William Grimes (BU - International Relations), Professor Robert Ross (BC - Political Science) Moderator: Dr. Grant Rhode (BU Center for the Study of Asia) Reception to follow. Hosted by the Asian Studies Initiative at BU Sponsored by the BU Center for the Study of Asia
