Gilbert Rozman is the editor-in-chief of The Asan Forum, a bi-monthly, on-line journal on international relations in the Asia-Pacific region. He is also the Emeritus Musgrave Professor of Sociology at Princeton University, where he spent 43 years on the faculty.  He specializes on Northeast Asia, including China, Japan, Russia, and South Korea. His research has examined bilateral relations and mutual perceptions, national identities, strategic thinking, strategies for regionalism, and historical factors affecting policy choices. Rozman has repeatedly turned to Sino-Russian, Russo-Japanese, Sino-Korean, Japanese-Korean, and Sino-Japanese relations, as they have evolved. In doing so, he has concentrated on sources in these countries that help to understand the causes of problematic relations. In The Asan Forum, he writes Washington Insights, reporting on events in DC that shed light on ongoing policy deliberations and proposals.
