Caucasus Research Resource Center (CRRC)-Armenia invites you to a Work-in-Progress presentation on
China’s Military Rise and East Asian Security
The rapid and persistent rise of China causes tectonic changes in the structure of East Asian regional security and becomes one of the most pressing issues of international relations scholarship. The presenter will reflect on his research of the effects of China’s military rise and Beijing’s involvement in the maritime disputes in East and South China Seas on the regional security of East Asia.
The study covers such issues as US Asian Pivot, regional economic interdependence and the dynamics of military expenditure in East Asia.
The preliminary findings of the statistical analysis, aimed at empirically bridging the contesting theories of realism/neorealism and liberalism/neoliberalism and deriving coefficients for a number of important factors, will be presented for discussion.

He has authored a number of publications on East Asian security and regional order, Sino-Japaneseand US-China relations.
