Japan-Canada-US Conference Series on Trilateral Cooperation
Published: 17 Octobre 2009 in Research Reports (10 pages)
The 2nd annual trilateral conference between Japan-Canada-US took place on August 30-31, 2010 in Tokyo, Japan. Hosted by the Japan Institute of International Affairs, the conference brought senior academics, policymakers, and business representatives together to explore avenues for trilateral cooperation on Arctic governance and regional architecture issues.
This follows the inaugural meeting in October 2009, hosted by APF Canada and the University of British Columbia, that brought together 35 senior academics, policymakers, and business representatives to examine trilateral cooperation on Arctic navigation and energy security issues. A lunch time discussion examined developments of the multilateral institutional architecture in the region.
The conference series, taking place over the period of 2009-2012, will explore avenues for trilateral cooperation among Japan, Canada, and the United States. In 2009, the inaugural conference was hosted in Vancouver examining avenues of cooperation on Arctic navigation and energy security issues. Institutions leading this project include: (1) Asia-Pacific Foundation of Canada and University of British Columbia (2) Reischauer Centre for East Asian Studies, SAIS, John Hopkins University; (3) the Japan Institute of International Affairs. This research and conference series is supported by a major grant from the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership and financial assistance from the Embassy of Canada in Japan.
