Japanese security policy has witnessed significant changes over the last year, with the formation of a Japanese National Security Council and the adoption of several new defense and security guidelines. Tokyo’s annual defense white paper offered a reinterpretation of the country’s pacifist constitution and adjustments to policies regarding dual use and defense technologies. For many in China, these developments have reinforced the notion that Japan is seeking to contain it.
Professor Zhao Hongwei of Hosei University will evaluate the possibility of conflict between China and Japan. Carnegie–Tsinghua’s Zhao Kejin will moderate. Zhao Hongwei is a professor at the Hosei University Faculty of Lifelong Learning and Career Studies. He is an expert in Chinese politics and East Asian international relations, and completed his PhD at the University of Tokyo’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Zhao Kejin is an expert on China’s foreign policy and diplomacy. At the Carnegie–Tsinghua Center for Global Policy, he runs a program that examines the development of China’s public diplomacy.
