Dominic Ziegler and Rob Gifford from the Economist

Two journalists from The Economist speak at Exeter College, University of Oxford about the recent ratcheting up of tensions in East Asia. Dominic Ziegler (Asia Editor) and Rob Gifford (China Editor) talk about the implementation of China’s new Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ) and how they think nearby countries such as Japan and South Korea will react. They also delve into the history of the region, and reflect on the importance of America’s role. The event is hosted by Frances Cairncross, Rector of Exeter College, University of Oxford.
