event110511The US-Japan alliance has constituted a central pillar of East Asian peace and stability. But how is the alliance affected by China's military rise and the ongoing 'normalisation' of Japanese security policy? The seminar will analyse this transformation and discuss its consequences for East Asia and the wider international system.
