A New U.S. - Japan Security Structure: Defining Japan's Role

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

U.S.-Japan relations in the 20th Century were complex, shifting from friendship to enmity and back to friendship again. Today, Japan has emerged as one of America's staunchest allies and a key strategic partner in Northeast Asia, even as we face an uncertain security environment in the region. Japan's evolving security structure raises intriguing issues and challenges for the future role of the U.S.-Japan alliance well into the 21st Century. Please join us for a discussion of this important relationship.
