China’s growing assertiveness in the South China Sea has raised concerns among countries in the region including Japan, Australia, and India. The re-naming of the former U.S. Pacific Command to the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command underscores a shift in emphasis with policy implications that have yet to be articulated. What is clear is that the involvement of more players in this region will highlight prospects and limitations to cooperation in the realm of maritime security.
In this seminar, Dean Yoichiro Sato described the Indo-Pacific maritime space as the domain of increasing security competition and cooperation, exploring these recent policy changes and the potential future implications for defense strategy.
This event was part of the Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies-JUMP seminar series.
