This joint Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies-JUMP seminar featured remarks from Professor Kerry Nankivell of the Daniel K. Inouye Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies (DKI APCSS), editor of “Chinese-Japanese Competition in the East Asian Security Complex.” The event was co-sponsored by the Institue of Contemporary Asian Studies, and will take place at Temple University’s Japan Campus.
In her talk, Professor Nankivell outlined the role that Sino-Japanese competition plays in East Asian security, an area of study largely overlooked in contemporary writing. The talk aimed to offer a multi-dimensional portrait of Chinese-Japanese competition in contemporary Asia. Considering energy competition and rivalry for trade and investment in the 1990s through to more overt military tensions from 2010 onward, this discussion lended much-needed specificity to our current understanding of the evolving relationship between Asia’s largest players. Professor Nankivell explored the nature, agency, timing and location of their rivalry over two decades, as well as its intersection with U.S. regional hegemony.
• Professor Kerry Nankivell is a maritime security specialist with broad expertise in the Asian littoral. She has published on maritime issues including the South China Sea disputes, naval modernization, piracy and other non-traditional challenges.
