Japan’s Invigorated Security Posture & Implications for the U.S. (Yokosuka)

June 22, 2017 , 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

At this joint Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies-JUMP seminar, Professor Andrew Oros discussed how Japan’s awakening to new security challenges has culminated in the multifaceted “security renaissance” of the past decade. He offered thoughts on the implications of that invigoration for the United States military. From a practical perspective, his remarks touched on both how the changes will influence regional security dynamics and suggest new opportunities for operational cooperation.

Professor Oros is a specialist on the international and comparative politics of East Asia and the advanced industrial democracies, with an emphasis on contending approaches to managing security. He is author or co-author of three books on Japan’s evolving security policies, including Japan’s Security Renaissance (Columbia University Press, 2017), over a dozen scholarly articles and book chapters, and numerous short policy briefs. He speaks frequently about his research on issues in Japanese politics and East Asian security in the mass media, to fellow researchers, and to policymakers in Washington DC, Tokyo, and world-wide.
