Protecting the Rules-based Regional Order in the Indo-Pacific: What Role for Japan?

Friday, 24 January | 2:45 pm - 4:00 pm

The Indo-Pacific region faces many geopolitical challenges. The rules-based regional order founded after the Second World War is now challenged internally and externally. As a maritime nation and beneficiary of the order, Mr Hanada will examine what Japan can do to maintain and enhance the rules-based system. He will explore the major challenges for Japan and the role and responsibilities of Japan in the Indo-Pacific region as well as its security and economic partnership beyond the Indo-Pacific.
