Asia Policy is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal presenting policy-relevant academic research on the Asia-Pacific that draws clear and concise conclusions useful to todayâs policymakers.
In addition to roundtables, policy Q&As, and reviews, Asia Policy publishes three types of essays: (1) social scientific research articles that use social science theories, concepts, and approaches and draw clear and concise policy implications on issues of import to the region, (2) research notes that present new, important, and exploratory conceptual frameworks or descriptive information of use to policymakers, especially on topics that have traditionally been underrepresented in the literature, and (3) policy analyses that present original, persuasive, analytically rigorous, and clear and concise research-based argumentation on crucial policy matters.
The Next Generation of Political Leadership in China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan
Major powers in East Asia are undergoing important political leadership transitions. In China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, a new generation is emerging, equipped with unique experiences and backgrounds. Exploring how these future leaders are likely to respond to regional trends and anticipating their policy preferences as they assume increasingly important leadership positions is critical to a well-grounded understanding of Northeast Asia in the 21st century. This report represents the culmination of a year-long initiative launched by NBR to provide U.S. government and corporate leaders with a better understanding of East Asia’s future leadership. By examining the qualities and characteristics that define these rising leaders and distinguish them from their predecessors, the initiative explores the possible implications of their emerging influence for U.S. foreign, economic, and security policy interests.
