Regional multilateralism and US-Japan security cooperation

Tuesday, April 7, 2015   19:30 - 21:00

  • Tsuneo Watanabe (Director of Policy Research and Senior Fellow at the Tokyo Foundation)

The Japan-US security relationship initially operated in a vacuum relatively disconnected from the regional activities of both partners.  It was solely a bilateral arrangement.  Japan pursued a minimalist foreign security policy, while US actions in Asia were separate from the alliance with Japan (though US bases in the country were always a major component of US military power in the region).

For over a decade, however, Tokyo and Washington have simultaneously reinforced their security relationship while at the same time sought ways to work jointly, or at least along parallel lines, in regional affairs in Asia and the Pacific.

Tsuneo Watanabe, a long time friend of ICAS, will discuss these issues and lead the discussion on these important questions.
