The Consulate-General of Japan and the Centre for the Study of Global Japan, a part of the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs, will co-host the symposium “Security Cooperation in East Asia, Japan, South Korea, and the United States” in the Campbell Conference Facility of the Munk School (1 Devonshire Place) on Feb. 9 at 2 p.m. as part of the JAPAN NOW Lecture Series.
As the ongoing crisis over North Korea’s nuclear weapons program starkly illustrates, coordinating effective international responses to serious regional challenges can be extremely difficult. Part of the difficulty rests with the fact that in every major geopolitical flashpoint in the region, important countries either stand on opposite sides of the issue or have at best partially overlapping interests.
The purpose of the symposium is to explore the possibilities and limits of enhanced security cooperation in East Asia, primarily among Japan, South Korea and the United States, and in the first instance specifically with respect to North Korea, but also more broadly.
Admission is free, but those planning to attend are asked to register from here.
This is an official event commemorating the 90th anniversary of Japan-Canada diplomatic relations.
