NIDS International Security Seminar

Given the new security environment as shaped by the changing dynamics of major power relations vis-à-vis the rise of China, and with the United States increasing its engagement and presence in the Asia-Pacific, it behooves us to examine various aspects of the U.S. strategy toward the region and explore the future roles, missions, and capabilities of the Japan-U.S. Alliance.

To spotlight the convergence of these critical issues, the NIDS hosted the International Security Seminar "Meeting the Challenge of China's Rise: A New Agenda for the Japan-U.S. Alliance," inviting distinguished experts from the U.S. and Japan.
