Northeast Asia, including the northeast coastal region of China, southeast coastal region of Russia, the Korean Peninsula and Japanese Archipelago, is a region of territorial issues that are associated with its history and diverse groups of people and national groups that share the region. Oftentimes those territorial issues are reflected through boundaries, geographical naming, and/or islands that may be singly or concurrently the focus of the geopolitics in the region. This session will include papers that address several of the issues that correspond with the establishment of territorial boundaries, the role that geographical naming within and outside the region, and the continuing importance of islands in the geopolitics of the region. The region is one of the most dynamic in Asia with increasingly critical relationships that tend to extend influences external to the region, whether it be trade, geographical naming, or island issues.
