[Feature] Whither US-China Strategic Competition? / Lee Nam Ju

The Quarterly Changbi 191, Spring 2021

 

Abstract

Political scientist Lee Nam Ju multi-dimensionally examines the concrete state of the US-China relationship and their strategic competition, which have recently emerged as an important variable and problem in the world order. The direction in which the US-China relationship evolves has grave implications not only for the Korean peninsula but also for worldwide international relations. Lee not only examines possible changing US-China relationship scenarios, based on different competitive phases in economic development and the military, technological, and geo-political elements, but also presents ways in which Korea can independently respond and the tasks it will require.
