The Korea Now Podcast

Mar 16, 2019

This episode of the Korea Now podcast features an interview that Jed Lea-Henry conducted with Stephen Nagy. They speak about the nature of East-Asian regionalism, the challenges it needs to overcome, the future prospects for deeper cooperation in the region, the changing face of Japan within this environment, the political climate under the Shinzo Abe government, and importantly, the impact that a re-emergent Japan is having on South Korea. Jed and Stephen then shift focus slightly to analyse the theatre, fallout and long-term ramifications of the recent Trump-Kim summit in Hanoi.

Stephen Nagy is a Distinguished Fellow at Canada's Asia Pacific Foundation (APF), a Fellow with the Canadian Global Affairs Institute (CGAI), and an appointed China expert with Canada’s China Research Partnership.
