Zusammenfassung

Nirgendwo sonst wird der internationale Führungsanspruch der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika derzeit ähnlich stark herausgefordert wie in Asien. In dieser sich im dynamischen Wandel befindlichen Weltregion treffen enormes Wirtschaftswachstum auf eine Vielzahl traditioneller und nicht-traditioneller Sicherheitsherausforderungen, schwelende Rivalitäten und ungelöste Territorialkonflikte. Obama richtete deshalb das strategische Augenmerk der USA auf Asien. Obamas Pivot to Asia in der Wirtschafts-, Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik brachte ihm deshalb auch den Beinamen ‚America’s first Pacific president‘ ein. Ziel des vorliegenden Beitrags ist es zu analysieren, inwiefern sich die dominante Position der USA in Asien seit dem Amtsantritt Donald Trumps verändert hat. Um diese Fragen zu beantworten werden die Beziehungen der USA zu China und Japan sowie zu Nord- und Südkorea untersucht.

Schlüsselwörter
