Japan’s Arctic Policy

January 17, 2013 - 15:30-17:00

Dr. Aki Tonami
Nordic Institute of Asian Studies (NIAS), University of Copenhagen
The Arctic region is a possible source of scientific research, new shipping routes and natural resources. Japan is one of the non-Arctic states that have applied for the Permanent Observer Status at the Arctic Council, yet its Arctic policy is not widely known outside of Japan’s Arctic community. In this seminar, Dr. Aki Tonami will provide a background and analysis of Japan’s Arctic Policy. What are Japan’s interests in the Arctic region and how will they be secured in the future?
Aki Tonami is Researcher at the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies (NIAS),
University of Copenhagen. She has a Ph.D. in Environmental Studies from Kyoto University (2008). Her main research areas include Japan’s international relations and environmental governance, particularly environmental aid.
The seminar will be moderated by Dr. Akihiro Ogawa.
Venue: Ohlinrummet, 5th floor, Stockholm School of Economics, Sveavägen 65
