China, Japan and Security in Asia


20 April 2016


Egmont Institute (meeting room), Rue des Petits Carmes 24 A, 1000 Brussels

The Asia-Pacific is a contested and volatile region. Japan and China are two of the main security actors in the region, but tensions and lack of cooperation between the two countries still prevent the development of a concerted approach to security and stability. Two prominent scholars from the National Institute for Defense Studies (NIDS) in Tokyo will come to the Institute, in order to present the main findings of their annual report on China. A discussion will follow, including a European perspective on the situation.


Michito Tsuruoka, Senior Researcher, National Institute for Defense Studies (NIDS), Tokyo

Shinji Yamaguchi, Research Fellow, National Institute for Defense Studies (NIDS), Tokyo

Michael Reiterer,  European External Action Service

-Thomas Renard, Senior Research Fellow, Egmont Institute, Brussels
