The CSIS Freeman Chair in China Studies organized a roundtable in its Washington DC office on China-Japan relations. The roundtable featured Linda Jakobson, Director of the East Asia program at Lowy Institute of International Policy and was moderated by Bonnie Glaser, Senior Advisor for Asia, Freeman Chair in China Studies. Participants included experts from organizations such as the United States Institute of Peace, Congressional Research Service, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the East West Center, the Center for a New American Security, and CSIS, who came together to discuss the drivers of recent tensions between China and Japan, and possible solutions going forward. Ms. Jakobson opened the session by discussing her insights from three workshops she conducted on Northeast Asian island disputes in Seoul, Beijing, and Tokyo in recent months.
