Cha, who served in the White House from 2004 to 2007, draws from theories about alliances, unipolarity and regime complexity to examine the evolution of the U.S. alliance system and the reasons for its continued importance in Asia and the world. During his time in the White House he was responsible for Japan, North and South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand. Additionally, he was George W. Bush’s top advisor on North Korean affairs. Dr. Cha is currently senior advisor at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).

The Jan. 17 event will begin with a reception at 5 p.m. in the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center followed a presentation at 5:30 p.m.
