‘Battle stations?’ Sea Power and Sino-Japanese Security Relations in the East China Sea

Thursday, September 13, 2012   19:30 - 21:00

  • Alessio Patalano

Over the past few years, maritime security emerged as a crucial factor in the East Asian regional order, especially as China rises as a major regional player. Is China taking the sea to challenge the American naval dominance in the Pacific? Are the territorial disputes with most of its neighbors, from South Korea in the north to the Philippines in the south, symptomatic of an aggressive strategy? What are the ambitions, opportunities and challenges that underpin Beijing’s maritime ascendance and more importantly, what are the implications of this for Japan?
Alessio Patalano, one of the leading experts on Japanese naval affairs, will discuss the different nature of Chinese and Japanese naval strategy in the wider context of Sino-Japanese security relations.
