Closed Roundtable Discussion

The second in a series of discussions on terrorism and its impact on the U.S.-Japan Security Alliance. A private day-and-a-half roundtable discussion, which will bring together experts in local and national government, emergency management, national security, academia and the media from both the U.S. and Japan.  Participants will discuss each country’s level of readiness in the face of a bioterrorist attack and suggest policy initiatives that would address specific vulnerabilities in managing the consequences of such an attack.
