Abstract : In light of the evolving security environment in Northeast Asia and potential changes that may occur over the next decade, the National Institute for Defense Studies (NIDS) of Japan, the Korea Institute for Defense Analyses (KIDA), and the Center for Naval Analyses (CNA) of the United States held a workshop in Tokyo, Japan, from 13 to 14 February 1997, to examine the prospects for Korea-Japan-United States naval cooperation between now and 2010. The purposes of the workshop were to identify factors in the Asia-Pacific security environment that would affect the cooperative relationship, including roads to Korean unification; identify possible roles and missions for the Korean, Japanese, and American navies; explore current and future trilateral naval relations between the three countries; and examine the role of multilateral organizations and cooperation in shaping U.S.-Japan-Korea naval cooperation. Twelve papers (four from each participating institute) were presented on these topics. They were followed by commentary and discussion. The presentations stimulated candid expression of views and highlighted the differences and similarities of outlook among participants. Appendices A through C contain lists of participants and observers.
