The Asian World Center at Creighton University in partnership with the Japan Outreach Initiative and the Nebraska World Affairs Council is bringing the Creighton community a lecture by the Honorary Consul of Japan for Nebraska, Mr. Andrew Schilling. The topic of the lecture will be "The U.S., Japan, and South Korea: Security Partners in the Indo-Pacific".
This event is free and open to the public. Space is limited. Lunch will be served on a first-come, first-served basis.
The trilateral summit meeting in Camp David in August 2023 has solidified the United States, Japan, and South Korea as vital security partners in the Indo-Pacific region. This landmark meeting underscores a shared commitment to regional stability and peace, aligning closely with Japan's National Security Strategy, emphasizing its role in upholding international norms and fostering a free and open Indo-Pacific region. Honorary Consul Andrew Schilling will address the evolution of Japan's national security posture and self-defense policy to adapt to emerging global threats while adhering to its constitutional principles of peace and non-aggression. Within the Indo-Pacific security landscape, concerns such as North Korea's missile threat and arms exports, the intricate dynamics between China and Taiwan, Russia's military activities, and the economic advantages offered by multilateral trade pacts like the CPTPP are all focal points, highlighting the need for collaborative efforts among these security partners to address the challenges effectively.
