Japan’s Strategic Review and a Taiwan Crisis

Sheila Smith, John E. Merow Senior Fellow for Asia-Pacific Studies, Council on Foreign Relations

4:30pm - 6:00pm | CSCC Conference Room, 133 S. 36th St, Room 418

2022 is expected to be a watershed year in Japanese strategy. North Korean missile launches and China’s expanding military power have intensified Japanese concerns about their security. But it is tension across the Taiwan Strait that may be the most compelling reason for Japanese decision makers to double their defense spending and invest in offensive capability. Sheila Smith will discuss her findings from a recent trip to Tokyo.
