Economic competition, territorial disputes, and historical issues have all led to precarious regional stability in East Asia. South Korea-Japan relations remain complicated, while Japan continues to search for an effective response to China’s policies of economic and regional expansion. Concurrently, North Korea’s belligerent ambitions have led to further uncertainty. While the U.S.-Japan Alliance remains strong, the time when it will be put to a serious test may be approaching. Yukio Okamoto, Robert E. Wilhelm Fellow at the MIT Center for International Studies and former Special Advisor to the Prime Minister of Japan, explores the balance of power in the region and analyzes the prospect for long-term stability.
