ASIANET 2019: The Asian Century
June 6, 2019-June 7, 2019
The 21st Century is Asia’s Century. At ASIANET 2019 we focus on four domains where the rise of Asia is already palpable: economy, politics, environment and culture. Economically, the gravity of the world economy has been shifting eastwards for decades. Starting with Japan and followed by the Asian Tigers, China and its increasingly global presence that includes the highly ambitious “Belt and Road Initiative” now dominate the headlines, even as Japan keeps playing a crucial role amidst other newly ‘emerging economies’. How does China influence regional development and what kinds of competing development models are visible in contemporary Asia?
Symposium Dates: 6 – 7 June, 2019.
Venue: University of Oslo, Blindern, Oslo
Organizer: Asianettverket (The Network for Asian Studies), Oslo University
