CSCAP Japan Activities

The CSCAP Japan Committee was established in April 1994. The Co-Chairs are Amb. Yoshiji Nogami, President and Director-General of the Japan Institute of International Affairs (JIIA), and Amb. Katsunari Suzuki, former Ambassador to The Korean Peninsula Energy Development Organization (former Ambassador to Brazil). JIIA has acted as CSCAP Japan's secretariat since the latter's establishment and is highly regarded among CSCAP member countries. In recent years, CSCAP Japan oversees the "Study Group on Countering the Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction in the Asia Pacific", the "Study Group on Water Resources Security" and the "Study Group on Naval Enhancement" as co-chair and plays important roles in giving CSCAP momentum.

*JIIA is genuinely grateful to the Central Japan Railway Company, The Japan International Cooperation Foundation (JICF) and other persons concerned for their cooperation in CSCAP activities.

 

What is CSCAP?

The Japan Institute of International Affairs along with nine other international policy and research institutes established CSCAP in 1993 in Kuala Lumpur. CSCAP is a non-governmental "Track II" process for multilateral security dialogue in the Asia-Pacific. Membership has expanded and today includes institutes representing Australia, Brunei, Cambodia, Canada, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, the Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Thailand, United States and Vietnam. CSCAP members seek to enhance regional security and stability through consultations and cooperation on policy issues and problems of mutual concern. CSCAP often addresses issues that are too sensitive for official dialogue, and supports and complements the efforts of governmental, "Track I" multilateral dialogue mechanisms such as the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF).
