About the Event

As the US presidential race heats up, Senators John McCain and Barack Obama are engaged in an increasingly contentious foreign policy debate, with potentially significant implications for US policy toward the Asia-Pacific region. What is the current state of this debate in Washington and what are the prospects for Asia policy under a new administration (be it Republican or Democratic)? Emma Chanlett-Avery, Analyst in Asian Affairs at the Congressional Research Service, will address these and other questions.
