François Godement in conversation with John Swenson-Wright

last modified Jul 27, 2015 03:02 PM

In light of the EU’s ongoing weapons exports to the region, François Godement discusses with Dr John Swenson-Wright, University Senior Lecturer in Modern Japanese Politics and International Relations and Head of the Asia Programme at Chatham House, the European Union’s position on the territorial disputes in the East and South China Sea and the question of whether Europe could play a more active role, either through balancing military strengths within the region or by reducing military exports.
