RIETI Policy Symposium

Asian Security Environment after the 9.11 Terrorism


Security landscapes in the world and the Asia-Pacific have been undergoing significant transformation after the terrorist attacks against the United States on September 11 last year. The question of terrorism has impacted security policies as well as security debates in various regions, and the U.S. role in world and regional security has also become a hot issue around the world.
In this policy symposium, five experts on Asian security will present their views on these recent security developments from their respective regional and/or sub-regional perspectives, i.e., Northeast Asia, Central Asia, South Pacific, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Several senior scholars of prominence, known for their deep engagement in both academic and policy communities will comment on their views. Before the symposium, five experts will present and discuss papers in closed workshop on December 17.


* Part of the symposium proceedings will be videotaped and broadcasted via internet in the near future. The paper materials will also be available on the RIETI website.
