    Geopolitics and Security Shifts in East Asia - The Perspective from Japan

    The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada (APF Canada) invites you to join us for a brownbag discussion on geopolitics and security shifts in East Asia focusing on Japan. There have been a number of dynamics impacting the geopolitical landscape in East Asia over the past few years. The most acute – and recent – examples of this have been the intensifying provocations from North Korea, which continues to look at enhancing its nuclear and missile program.

    But, there are also a number of other critical changes in the region – from new leadership in South Korea to leadership consolidation in China. The region also continues to adapt to a new administration in the U.S. and its changing views on trade and – perhaps – alliances. All of these factors have made Japan's geo-strategic environment more complex. How is Japan adapting to this change and what are the tripwires to watch for? Also, what role is Canada – as a key middle power and long-standing friend of Tokyo – playing in this security environment?
