In East Asia, provocations from North Korea have developed into a serious, global, threat. Other flashpoints, such as the South China Sea, remain active in the background. As a result, uncertainty in the international order has increased. In light of the effect of these and other security dynamics in East Asia, the speaker will provide a geopolitical analysis of major power vacuums in world history, and outline a vision of the future of the region.
