Launch of new publication
Read more about Professor Kevin Clements edited volume, Identity, Trust and Reconciliation in East Asia: Dealing with Painful History to Create a Peaceful Present
This volume includes chapters from 15 scholars from Asia and Europe, including Professor Clements and Dr Ria Shibata, both University of Otago based.
Professor Richard Falk, said
“Kevin Clements has expertly edited a fascinating series of commentaries on the intensifying tensions challenging East Asia and how these might be addressed for the mutual benefit of China, Japan and Korea. The whole, undertaking, deepened by workshop interactions, warns of the dangers posed if new nationalisms are not sensitive to the regional interplay of historical memories and cultural differences.”
Congratulations to Kevin on the completion and publication of this important volume.
