japan flag In March this year, following over a year of parliamentary debate and public protests, the Abe government's controversial new security legislation came into effect. This ostensibly allows Japan to exercise a right to collective self-defence without revising or contravening the 'pacifist' Constitution. The meaning and implications of these changes for Japan, international security and Australia-Japan relations will be examined in this address.

Dr Terry Narramore is a specialist on East Asian politics and diplomacy in the University of Tasmania's Politics and international Relations Program. He is also a Vice-President of the AIIA's Tasmanian branch.
