Chatham House, London

Asia Programme


Nobushige Takamizawa, President, the National Institute for Defense Studies, Japan Ministry of Defense
Chair: Kerry Brown, Head, Asia Programme, Chatham House


In the face of emerging and increasingly complicated security challenges, Japan is seeking wider and multi-layered security cooperation with the US and its allies. The speaker will discuss how measures to overcome long-standing issues, such as the promotion of capacity-building and the review of the Japanese guidelines on the overseas transfer of defence equipment, will provide opportunities for substantial security and defence cooperation between Japan, the UK and NATO.
