Japan’s Space Law Shift Rattles Regional Nerves
OP-ED, Global Times, July 02 2012. Webpage Link

Abstract:
The House of Councillors of Japan's Diet recently passed legislation deleting the provisions that the country's Aerospace Exploration Agency's activities are limited to peaceful purposes. According to the law, Japan's aerospace research and development are now developed for security programs such as spy satellites. What motivated the legislation? What influence it will have on regional security and stability? Global Times (GT) reporter Wang Zhaokun talked to Liu Jiangyong (Liu), deputy director of the Institute of International Studies at Tsinghua University, Kazuto Suzuki (Suzuki), an associate professor at the Public Policy School of Japan's Hokkaido University, and Lee Sangsoo (Lee), a research fellow with the Stockholm-based Institute for Security and Development Policy, on these issues.

Keywords:
Japan, Asia, Aerospace, Research and Development, Security, Non-traditional Security Issues, Domestic Policy
