(April2022 ~ March2024)

Project Background

  • The China-Taiwan conflict is rapidly moving up the military escalation ladder.
  • This has a significant impact on the security of not only the region, but also Japan, Southeast Asia, and the rest of the world.
  • Comprehensive security engagement by Japan and the United States alongside cooperation between Japan and the United States with Taiwan – which shares values such as freedom and democracy – is important to avoid climbing the escalation ladder and maintain peace and stability in the region.

Significance of implementation by the Sasakawa Peace Foundation (SPF)

  • It is said that Japan-U.S.-Taiwan cooperation (Track 1) by the Japanese and U.S. governments and related organizations that recognize the One China policy is politically difficult.
  • Under these circumstances, collaboration among security-related think tanks from Japan, the United States, and Taiwan (Track 2.0 and 1.5), is significant.
  • Moreover, we believe that it is meaningful for SPF, which has a track record of producing policy recommendations and conducting activities including Table Top Exercises (TTX) in the region, to lead this type of research (information sharing, discussions, proposals, etc.), share information, and make policy recommendations.
