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.
