Under the Abe administration, the Japanese and American governments have been revising their defense guidelines for the first time since 1997. With these new defense guidelines, how will the relationship between the U.S. and Japan change? Furthermore, by re-evaluating the security agreement, what type of implications will U.S.-Japan relations have on the territorial disputes in East Asia and maritime security on the South China Sea? This event features international security experts discussing the trends and prospects of the future of the Asia-Pacific region, and how the U.S.-Japan defense agreement impacts these prospects.
