In this public lecture, experts from Japan and Australia will discuss opportunities and challenges around Japan-Australia bilateral cooperation within the existing regional security architecture. How can Japan and Australia revitalise and enhance open and inclusive regional security institutions, such as the ASEAN Regional Forum, ASEAN Defence Ministers Meeting Plus, and East Asia Summit? What are new areas in which both countries can further cooperate in regional security institutions? What are challenges against such cooperation?

The discussion will be chaired by Dr Amy King (ANU), with Associate Professor Mie Oba (Tokyo University of Science), Associate Professor Ryo Sahashi (Kanagawa University), and Professor Nick Bisley (La Trobe University) on the panel.

Drinks and canapes will be provided in the Hedley Bull Atrium following the event.

This event is co-hosted by the Australia-Japan Research Centre (AJRC) and the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre (SDSC).
