Host: American Enterprise Institute. Since the end of World War II, the U.S.-Japanese alliance has ensured peace in Asia by allowing for the forward basing of American troops and fostering cooperation on a wide array of security issues. But the threats posed by aggressive authoritarianism in China and North Korea, territorial disputes, nationalist passions, and a burgeoning arms race threaten to transform the region and pose vital challenges to the U.S.-Japanese partnership.

In a new report entitled Securing Freedom: The U.S.-Japanese Alliance in a New Era, AEI’s Michael Auslin and Christopher Griffin, defense policy adviser to Senator Joseph Lieberman (I-D-Conn.), demonstrate that the United States and Japan should reorient their alliance to support political and economic liberalization.
