US-Japan-Australia Security Relations: Prospects and Challenges

Stimson on April 29, 2015

Foreign Affairs and National Security Group of the Canon Institute for Global Studies, in partnered with the Stimson Center (USA) and Australian National University (Australia), conducted the research project entitled "US-Japan-Australia Security Cooperation" in 2014-15. As a final publication of this project, we are pleased to present "US-Japan-Australia Security Cooperation: Prospects and Challenges."

Trilateral security relationship among the United States, Japan, and Australia has quickly emerged as one of the most robust "minilateral" cooperative relationships that the United States has with its allies. The report examines the trilateral relationship from the lens of general international relations theory, as well as from its specific historical context. Within this framework, the volume discusses specific policy dimensions of the relationship: humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, maritime capacity building, and defense technology.

From CIGS, Yuki Tatsumi (also serves as Senior Research Fellow at the Stimson Center) edited the whole volume as well as contributed a chapter on "US-Japan-Australia Cooperation on Defense Equipment". Ken Jimbo contributed a chapter on "Japan-US-Australia Cooperation on Capacity Building in Southeast Asia."
