Korea at the crossroads: Relations with Japan

What opportunities exist for bilateral cooperation between South Korea and Japan in east Asia?

41 minute listen

Over the course of five episodes, all published this week, John Nilsson-Wright explores the strategic relations of Korea, asking how the country is seeking to protect its interests in an increasingly contested Pacific region.

In this, the third episode, John is joined again by Jennifer Lind to interview Nobukatsu Kanehara, a senior adviser to The Asia Group and board member of The National Bureau of Asian Research. They discuss the Republic of Korea’s complex relations with its neighbour and sometime rival Japan, and how the two countries can develop cooperation on shared challenges such as North Korea.
