CSCAP Japan Activities

The CSCAP Japan Committee was established in April 1994, and is currently chaired by Amb. Kenichiro Sasae, President and Director-General of the Japan Institute of International Affairs (JIIA). 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 has overseen the Study Group on Multilateral Security Governance in Northeast Asia/North Pacific, the Study Group on Water Resources Security, the Study Group on Naval Enhancement, and the Study Group on Regional Security Architecture as co-chair and has played important roles in giving CSCAP momentum.

CSCAP Japan organized the 3rd Meeting of the Study Group on Regional Security Architecture in March 2014, the 18th Meeting of the Study Group on Countering the Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction in the Asia Pacific in July 2014, and the 3rd Meeting of the Study Group on Marine Environmental Protection in February 2017. CSCAP Japan also organized the 46th CSCAP Steering Committee Meeting in Tokyo in December 2016, the first such meeting held in Japan for 19 years.

*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, 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).
