China and Japan National Security: A Japanese Perspective

Dr. Yasuhiro Matsuda, the 2006
Joji Konoshima Distinguished Scholar at the US-Asia Institute, discusses the
rise of China as perceived through a Japanese lens.  Japan plays a critical role
in the current U.S. security architecture within the Asia Pacific region.  As
China’s regional influence increases, the U.S. appears to be increasingly
reliant on its relationship with Japan as a counter-balance.   Professor Matsuda
will address the evolving East Asian security situation and provide a unique
Japanese perspective to these issues.  Does Japan view China as an economic
opportunity or a strategic threat?  What are the implications to regional
security within Asia?  How does this affect U.S. relations with both countries?
