As the Covid-19 situation progresses, YCAPS is making a gradual and measured return to hosting in-person events. On Thursday, November 11 th , we had the pleasure of holding an in- person seminar in Sasebo, Nagasaki. At the event, YCAPS Senior Advisor and Vice President of the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies, Dr. Narushige Michishita, presented on the lessons we learned from the Cold War and how they can apply to Chinese expansion and the current balance of power in the Pacific. Dr. Michishita then lead the subsequent Q&A. The event was reported on by Stars & Stripes, and you can read their article here. Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for this seminar!
