Helping to bring peace and stability to Japan and the greater Indo-Pacific region
Competition for influence between the United States and China has continued to intensify. As this battle for dominance unfolds, the world will turn to see what role Japan will play as a major U.S. ally. The Security Studies Program collaborates with domestic and international experts and organizations to research this increasingly multi-faceted and complex strategic environment further compounded by the Russo-Chinese cooperative relationship, North Korea’s persistent pursuit of nuclear weapons and missile capabilities, and the emergence of new domains including cybersecurity and space. We prepare proposals aimed at realizing peace and security throughout Japan and the Indo-Pacific region and present our results in a timely manner.
