Reflections on how China and Japan’s security priorities have changed since 1945, and since the end of the Cold War, and how each country defines security and sets security priorities and goals, and forecasting how these may change or endure into the future.

Part I:

China’s post-WWII/post-Cold War security

Part II:

Japan’s post-WWII/post-Cold War security

Part III:

What will China and Japan’s security priorities be in the future?  How will they be defined?  What areas are there for common ground and necessary cooperation?  How to address global challenges?
