On October 22, the Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies (YCAPS) will host its thirteenth YCAPS-JUMP webinar at 7 PM JST. This is part of an ongoing series exploring interesting and contemporary topics relevant to our base communities and beyond. Our guest speaker is Dr. Alessio Patalano from King’s College London who will speak on the rising tensions between the Japan-U.S. alliance and China in the Senkaku Islands.
Chinese activities in the waters around the Senkaku Islands have undergone a significant change over the past few months. This is a potentially dangerous development for Sino–Japanese relations. In addition, the increased confrontation between China and the United States, as well as India, could add fuel to the fire of an already combustible dispute.
Prior to the talk, you might wish to read our speaker’s work titled “A Gathering Storm? The Chinese ‘Attrition’ Strategy for the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands” and “What is China’s Strategy in the Senkaku Islands?”
