    Mark Fitzpatrick: Nuclear latency with an attitude

    07 October 2014.  ‘Who coined the term “Japan model”?’, plaintively asked a participant at a workshop on nuclear latency at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington on 2 October. Panellists speaking about Iran’s and Brazil’s nuclear programmes respectively had both used the term to describe the aspirations of those countries for acquiring advanced civilian nuclear technologies. Like Japan, both want to expand uranium enrichment unhindered. Brazil’s case raises its own set of questions, such...

    William Choong and Alexander Neill: The Singapore school of foreign relations - IISS–Fullerton Lecture

    02 July 2014.  By William Choong and Alexander Neill, Shangri-La Dialogue Senior Fellows for Asia–Pacific Security In his critically-acclaimed One Man’s View of the World, Singapore’s founding father Lee Kuan Yew espouses the essence of Singapore’s approach to international relations.

Halfway through his 38-minute speech, the deputy chief of general staff of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) accused Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and United States Secretary of Defence Chuck Hagel of ‘coordinating’ and ‘supporting’ one another in comments targeted at China. Lt-Gen. Wang...

    Christian Le Mière: Japan, Lawfare and the East China Sea

    04 June 2014.  By Christian Le Mière, Senior Fellow for Naval Forces and Maritime Security In an article published by The Diplomat on May 29, Jerome Cohen makes an impassioned and well-reasoned argument for states in East Asia to utilize independent, third-party arbitration mechanisms wherever possible to challenge China’s maximalist claims. This was very much the theme of a question I asked Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at his opening keynote address at this year’s Shangri-La Dialogue. Essentially, I asked the...
