December 31, 2012

Volume 10 | Issue 54 | Number 6

Article ID 4606

Between 2012 and 2014 we posted a number of articles on contemporary affairs without giving them volume and issue numbers or dates. Often the date can be determined from internal evidence in the article, but sometimes not. We have decided retrospectively to list all of them as Volume 10, Issue 54 with a date of 2012 with the understanding that all were published between 2012 and 2014.


フォーラム「沖縄はどこへ向かうのか?」12月19日 於 沖縄大学

The “Where is Okinawa Going?” forum will present and discuss Okinawan perspectives on the current situation surrounding the southernmost islands of Japan, amid the ongoing controversy over the “Futenma relocation” issue, from three viewpoints: 1) environment and biodiversity in the context of the Convention of Biological Diversity (COP10) in Nagoya; 2) Northeast Asian regional geopolitics in the wake of the Japan-China conflict over the ship collision near the Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands; and 3) the Okinawa-Japan-US relationship and the issue of US military bases in light of the November 2010 Okinawa gubernatorial election.

Location: Okinawa University, Classroom 3-101,
