Since October 2010, USJI Security Policy Research Project team, which is led by Professor Shotaro Yachi, Visiting Professor at WOJUSS, has been working on a research on “Policy Recommendations for Comprehensive Japan-US Security Cooperation in a New World Order.” In this project, the team examines what roles Japan and the United States should and can play as alliance partner to tackle with new security challenges in Asia-Pacific region and promote ”the free and open international order.” In October 2011, the research team published a book “Ronshu – Nihon no gaikouseisaku to sougou anzenhosho” (Essays on Japanese Foreign Policy and Comprehensive Security)* as interim report and has continued the research. This seminar is organized to further explore the subject with insights from the American counterpart.
In this seminar, the panel of Japanese and American experts will discuss a number of security issues that both Japan and the US face in the region, including Denuclearization of Korean Peninsula and Maritime Security in East Asia. Mr. Kurt Campbell, Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, will provide his view on the U.S. role and responsibility in maintaining the regional order in Asia with a special focus on emerging China. Japanese and American experts on security issues will make comments for discussions.
USJI will be hosting this seminar as part of the semi-annual USJI week in cooperation with WOJUSS.
