Join us at the USC Korean Studies Institute as Alex Yu-Ting Lin discusses when, how, and why the great powers’ pursuit of status and prestige motivates conflict. The talk has broader implications for US-China relations, the return of great power politics, and US grand strategy.

His research interests include the causes of great power competition, economic statecraft, and regional order in the Asia Pacific. He was previously a predoctoral fellow with the Institute for Security and Conflict Studies at the Elliott School of International Affairs, the George Washington University.
