Join Hudson Institute Walter P. Stern Distinguished Fellow Kenneth R. Weinstein and Japan’s State Minister of Defense The Honorable Yasuhide Nakayama for a discussion on the transformation of Japanese security strategy and its implications for the U.S.-Japan alliance.

The recent declaration by Japanese Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi that Japan does not limit defense spending to one percent of GDP but instead peg spending levels to security threats represents the latest development in the evolution of Japanese strategic thinking. Kishi’s announcement followed nine years of increased defense spending in response to China’s military modernization and increasingly aggressive assertion of territorial claims in the East and South China Seas, as well as regular Chinese and Russian incursions into Japanese airspace and the continued threat posed by North Korea’s missile program. What do these changes signal for the future of Japan’s security strategy? Please join Hudson Institute for this timely conversation.
