With 2024 marking NATO’s 75th anniversary, join Stimson Center’s Korea and Japan Programs for a discussion of the growing cooperation between NATO and key U.S. allies in Northeast Asia.

This expert panel will assess the evolving relationship between Northeast Asia—particularly South Korea and Japan—and NATO as it is in its 75th anniversary year. What is driving these U.S. transatlantic and Northeast Asian allies closer? What are the potential areas to expand cooperation? What factors might constrain further partnership?
