China's ADIZ and the Security of East Asia
Donald K. Emmerson (panelist), Stanford University
China's surprise declaration of an Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) that extends out into the East China Sea, including disputed territories with both Japan and South Korea, and overlapping with an existing ADIZ set up by Japan has triggered a new round of tension and instability in Northeast and East Asia. The United States government has intervened rapidly, both rejecting the Chinese assertion and the rules it proclaimed for the zone, and seeking to mediate the diplomatic tensions that have arisen in the region. South Korea has now modified its own ADIZ to assert its territorial claims in the area. What does this latest crisis over territory and the projection of power in Northeast Asia portend for the future? What does it tell us about Chinese intentions and management of its relations with its neighbors? How can we assess the reactions of Japan, South Korea and the United States? And what might this mean for other areas of contention, most of all the South China Sea?
