China and Japan are currently experiencing an extremely difficult period in their relationship, and rising tensions over the East China Sea (ECS) are producing a series of negative actions and reactions. Why and how has the ECS become a source of conflict and insecurity, and why have tensions escalated in recent years? Can the challenges posed by the current tensions be turned into opportunities to take China-Japan relations into a more positive direction? Dr. Cui’s lecture addressed these questions, placed China-Japan relations within emerging regional and international contexts, and offered some policy suggestions for the future.
