US-Japan Military Base Issues: The "Okinawa Question" Project

This guide will provide help on locating both electronic and print resources related on the latest US military base issues in Okinawa.

About the "Okinawa Question" Project

The " Okinawa Question" project was launched in summer 2003 as a Japan-U.S. bilateral project to examine the changing regional security environment and its implications for the U.S.-Japan alliance. The project sought to incorporate Okinawa's perspective in considering the proper form of the U.S.-Japan alliance in the twenty-first century and the role of this alliance for Asia-Pacific security.
