Japan's Security Policy Transformation: Why Now?
Getting to Know Japan Webinar (via Zoom) -- Tuesday, July 11, 2023 at 1000 (JST)
In this talk, Dr. Wallace introduces the post-war evolution of Japan’s security policy and the significance of post-2020 policy adaptations. The presentation covers historical debates about continuity and change and the role of the Koizumi and Abe administrations in driving forward Japan’s security agenda in the new millennium. It also provide reflections on why we are seeing even more transformative security policy steps being taken post-2020 even after the end of the Abe administration.
