Abstract : This report documents a conference regarding the continued viability of the Japan-U.S. alliance in the post-Cold War era, and the future role and impact of emerging East Asian multilateral security agreements and alliances. Participants examined issues affecting the future of the Japan-U.S. bilateral security relationship in conjunction with the current trend toward multilateralism, its motivating and driving forces, and its implications for Japan, the United States, and East Asia in general. The end of the Cold War and the subsequent disintegration of the Soviet Empire have prompted calls for a reassessment of the continued viability of the Japan-U.S. security relationship. Has the current trend toward multilateral security dialogue in Asia, most recently evidenced by the establishment of the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), rendered the bilateral relationship obsolete? The conclusion of the Conference was agreement that the relationship continues to be essential for both countries and for the entire Asia-Pacific region.
