Mitigare il rischio geopolitico. Il Giappone come stabilizzatore in Asia (fonte: IFRI)

Céline PAJON

In the current tumultuous geopolitical setting, Tokyo may have a very specific, stabilizing role to play.

Japan indeed has, at the same time, very close ties to the United States, due to its long-term alliance, and very tight economic ties with China, due to geographical closeness and a long history of economic and trade relations. As the US-China rivalry becomes more severe, degrading from a trade war to an ideological confrontation and tensions in the Taiwan Strait, Tokyo has to find a way to protect both its security and economic interests.
