SPF Seminar on International Security
"The Post-Post-Cold War" A New Standoff, or Continuing Chaos?
(Thursday, May 30, 2019)

The Sasakawa Peace Foundation (SPF) has been active in conducting studies on international security issues led by scholars from both inside and outside the foundation. This SPF seminar series aims to disseminate the products of this research in order to form new and growing networks among those who are interested in security issues. Moving forward, SPF plans to hold this seminar generally on a bi-monthly basis to address the most current and critical topics. The theme of the first round in this series is "The Post-Post-Cold War" A New Standoff, or Continuing Chaos? After the end of the Cold War, the world has experienced a series of wars, fear of terrorism, and the severe consequences of natural disasters. Japan's national security policy has also undergone drastic developments over the same period. As Japan enters the new "Reiwa" era, tensions between the U.S. and China continue to run high, issues related to the Korean Peninsula appear no closer to resolution, and the fear of terrorism shows no sign of diminishing. This begs the question, in what direction is Japan's security headed? SPF's Japan, U.S., and China policy experts will engage with this question and related themes through in-depth debate and discussion during the first seminar of the series. (First 300 applicants)
