The Canon Institute for Global Studies (CIGS) hosted a seminar on March 23, 2018 inviting Mr. Daniel C. Sneider from East Asian Studies at Stanford University (Moderator; Kuni MIYAKE, Research Director). This is the summary of speech and Q&A.



Abstract of the Speech
The Japan-U.S. security alliance remains one of the great triumphs of the Cold War period. It has retained its vitality and its purpose, despite tectonic changes in the global order in the last few decades. But it is dangerous to be complacent about the alliance. There are serious challenges and stresses to the underlying purpose and operation of the alliance today. Some of them are long-term and geo-strategic - not least the rise of China and its bid for regional hegemony and the destabilizing impact of North Korea's nuclear and missile capability. But there are also the challenges that arise from the emergence of an American nationalist populism that has rejected the post-war system of multilaterally governed free trade and collective security. What does this mean for Japan and the U.S. today and in coming years?
