Gilbert Rozman

Emeritus Musgrave Professor of Sociology
Princeton University

Dr. Gilbert Rozman is the Emeritus Musgrave Professor of Sociology and the editor-in-chief of The Asan Forum, a bi-monthly, on-line journal on international relations in the Indo-Pacific region. He specializes in national identity issues in China, Japan, Russia, and South Korea, particularly in the context of bilateral trust and evolving relations in Northeast Asia.

He is also the editor-in-chief for KEI’s Joint-U.S.-Korea Academic Studies series. He taught at Princeton from 1970 to 2013. His specialization is Northeast Asia—China, Japan, Russia, and South Korea—including modernization, national identities, mutual perceptions, regionalism, and strategic thinking. Much of his work has involved comparisons—of socialism and the transition away from the traditional forms of it; of Confucian legacies and their impact on modern societies; of national strategies for regionalism and how they conflict with each other; and of the sources of distrust in bilateral relations and in relations with the United States.

Dr. Rozman completed an undergraduate degree in Chinese and Russian studies at Carleton College and earned a doctorate in sociology at Princeton University.
