With the stirring of conflict heightening anxiety, strategic forces are pushing Australia and Japan closer together, and as regional powers in the Indo-Pacific they have much to gain from increased bilateral cooperation and interaction through ‘minilaterals’ such as the Quad.
With the signing of agreements such as the ‘Special Strategic Partnership’ and the recent historic Reciprocal Access Agreement, the relationship between Australia and Japan has never been closer.
How can the two countries deepen their relationship in a time of strategic contestation? How can they better use diplomatic, trade and security policy tools to deal with new challenges? And how might cultural and people-to-people links be further developed?
