Event Description

KEI is pleased hold a program on US-ROK-Japan Trilateral Relations & Integrated Deterrence. The US Department of Defense advanced the concept of integrated deterrence in its 2022 National Defense Strategy (NDS), which seeks to integrate all tools of national power across domains, geography, and spectrum of conflict, while working with allies and partners. Nevertheless, there remains uncertainty surrounding integrated deterrence as a concept, how it can be implemented, and, critically, how key U.S. allies and partners view it. Given the importance of US-ROK-Japan trilateral relations — and recent improvements in bilateral relations between Tokyo and Seoul — KEI is bringing together three experts to help shed light on the concept of integrated deterrence in a trilateral context and help us better understand allied perspectives on the still-evolving concept.
