As part of Okinawa in Focus, a special year-long series commemorating the 50-year anniversary of Okinawa's reversion to Japan from the United States, this webinar explores the crucial role Okinawa has played in U.S.-Japan security relations, serving both Japanese and American strategic interests. Due to the islands' geo-strategic location, Okinawa is host to a significant number of U.S. military bases in Japan that maintain peace and security in the region. What is Okinawa’s role in the U.S.-Japan security relationship? Will it remain a strategically important hub? As the war in Ukraine brings a historic spotlight on the importance of strengthening geopolitical alliances and strategic interests across the globe, our U.S.-Japan security experts discuss the current geopolitical situation, Okinawa’s significance today, and its future role in U.S.-Japan relations.
