Description

'JAPAN'S STRATEGIC CHOICES IN A DANGEROUS WORLD'

presented by Prof Toshihiro Nakayama

the Sir Howard Kippenberger Chair 2017

Northeast Asia is an increasingly dangerous place, with tensions high on the Korean Peninsula, a more assertive China, unresolved territorial issues, and questions about the future role of the United States. These developments present critical challenges for Japanese foreign and security policymakers. Under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Japan has taken proactive steps to reform its national security policy and national security infrastructure, and since the election of President Trump last November it has 'doubled down' on the US-Japan alliance. But questions remain about how Japan should best safeguard its national interests. This lecture will discuss the security challenges Japan faces and the options it is considering in a period of dramatic strategic change.
