Japan’s New National Security Strategy & Its Impacts on Regional Stability

Japan’s New National Security Strategy & Its Impacts on Regional Stability

Thursday, March 27, 2014

Masashi Nishihara, George Packard

Seating still available. Please call 212-715-1208 to register.

The 21st century has seen significant changes in the global balance of power alongside the emergence of serious regional threats, such as North Korea’s nuclear arsenal, and transnational threats, such as cyber-terrorism. In response to these potential threats, last December Japan established a new National Security Council and adopted its first National Security Strategy, centralizing its existing security apparatus under the new policy of “Proactive Contribution to Peace.” While it is yet to be seen how this new system will operate, it has already changed the landscape of security in East Asia. In this lecture, Dr. Masashi Nishihara, President of the Research Institute for Peace and Security, discusses the implications of these changes in national security policy on regional security and the Japan-U.S. alliance.
