(Dis)integrating Asia? Competing Visions, Practical Solutions for Regional Integration

Asia’s future will be largely determined by the visions and strategies of key actors in the region and their ability to inspire and shape the regional order in the years and decades to come. In this context, Ifri is piloting a discussion with experts from a range of major players in Asia to exchange views on the course of Asian regionalism, and the geopolitical, economic and security factors that are simultaneously bringing the region together and splitting it apart.
