This presentation drew on the results of a fellowship just concluded in Tokyo, where Roberts was a visiting fellow at the Japanese Ministry of Defense think tank, the National Institute for Defense Studies, for 6 weeks until July 4. It reviewed key developments in the region in terms of their impact on extended deterrence and strategic stability, described the strategies of the United States and its East Asian allies to strengthen regional deterrence and reviewed key issues likely to be in discussion among allies in coming years.
