Overview

The Security Studies Unit (SSU) of the Policy Alternatives Research Institute (PARI) was established in 2008 in the awareness of a pressing number of issues concerning the future of security in the East Asian region and its institutionalization, the reciprocal relations between security and economic interdependence, the rise of new conceptualizations of security and the examination of the related political processes.

Research

SSU produces academic research and policy proposals, as well as host international joint research and international conferences, focusing in particular on issues such as relation between economy and security, the security structure of North-East Asia, the deepening the Japan-US alliance, the search for a way to enhance multilateral security cooperation, the strengthening of nuclear disarmament non-proliferation, and the formulation of a new concept of security.
