On October 30, 2017, Dr. Chaibong HAHM, president of the Asan Institute for Policy Studies, gave a special lecture on “The Origins of the Liberal International Order in Northeast Asia and the New Cold War.” In the lecture, he argued that the historic window of opportunity for economic development and regional integration that Northeast Asia has enjoyed for the past 50 years is closing. Highlighting the importance of the liberal international order in Northeast Asia in the past,  he urged audience members to question what made that liberal order possible in the first place.  After reviewing the ways in which the international order is being presently undermined, Dr. Hahm spoke of the importance of, and methods for, its preservation.
