• The Errors of NATO's East-Asia Engagement

    Indo-Pacific Policy Dialogue 22 September, 19:30 (Tokyo)

    Based on his joint article "The errors of NATO’s East Asia engagement" with Linus Hagström from the Swedish Defence University, Dr Ulv Hanssen of Soka University will discuss their perspective of NATO's perceived errors and what it means for the Indo-Pacific region. Why is or is not NATO's engagement in the Indo-Pacific in the interest of NATO and the EU? Can policy makers separate the Indo-Pacific and European theatre? If there is engagement, what is the appropriate formula?


    To help us answer these questions, YCAPS' Indo-Pacific Policy Dialogue is happy to welcome Professor Ulv Hanssen of Soka University to provide insight on these questions and more to glean clarity on NATO's engagement in East-Asia.
