SSU Forum with Dr. Fumihiko Yoshida and Mr. Bill Emmott

Date: Tuesday, February 28 2017, 10:30-12:00
Venue: Conference Room, 3rd Floor, Ito International Research Center
Subject New Security Challenges under Emerging Technologies--Implications to Deterrence and Strategic Stability
Lecture: Dr. Fumihiko Yoshida (Vice Director, RECNA)
Comment: Mr. Bill Emmott (Chairman, Wake Up Foundation, Former Chief Editor of the Economist)
Language: English
Hosted by: Security Studies Unit, Policy Alternatives Research Institute, the University of Tokyo

[ Description ]
The goal of this forum will be to foster better understanding of the complicated nature of "security.", and security strategies. Many new and advanced technologies in the field of AI, cyber, robotics and nanotechnology have been advancing and proliferating rapidly, and these combined with security concerns, such as the rise of China, terrorism, and consequences of globalization, have created multiple challenges to our security environment. It has also caused us to rethink about the meaning of strategic stability and the notion of deterrence.

SSU Forum with Dr. Cedric de Coning, Professor Chiyuki Aoi

Date: Friday, February 24 2017, 17:30-19:00
Venue: Seminar Room, 3rd Floor, Ito International Research Center

[ Description ]
The presenters will outline the findings of a new book, UN Peacekeeping Doctrine in a New Era: Adapting to Stabilisation, Protection and New Threats (edited by de Coning, Aoi, and Karlsrud, Routledge, 2017). They will discuss key questions facing UN peacekeeping in today’s volatile security environment, such as:

- How do the UN Security Council, Troop Contributing Countries and the UN Secretariat view the challenges facing UN peacekeeping today, when the trend is increasingly to deploy UN peace operations into complex conflict settings, often in insecure environments, where there is little or no peace to keep? - What can the new UN Secretary-General, Antonió Guterres, do to make UN peacekeeping more effective? - The UN is under pressure to use more force, and to proactively protect civilians. Where does peacekeeping end and peace enforcement begin? Where is the border between defensive and offensive operations?
