The war in Ukraine could have significant geopolitical consequences for East Asia. Much of its impact is yet to be seen and may depend on how the war ends and on what lessons Asian leaders, particularly China's President Xi Jinping, are learning from the war itself as well as the West's response to it. U.S. allies' reactions may also affect China’s calculations. The panelists will discuss the war's broad political and security implications and address important questions such as: What should the United States and its allies do? Will the war prove to be a nightmare or a silver lining for President Xi?
