U.S. Military Presence in Okinawa and the Futenma Base Controversy
Emma Chanlett-Avery (au); Ian E. Rinehart (au)
Although the U.S.-Japan alliance is often labeled as ńˇýthe cornerstoneńˇŁ of security in the Asia Pacific region, local concerns about the U.S. military presence on the Japanese island of Okinawa have challenged the management of the alliance for decades. The Japanese archipelago serves as the most significant forward-operating platform for the U.S. military in the region. With the U.S. pledging to rebalance its defense posture towards Asia, the uncertainty surrounding the medium and long-term presence of American forces on Okinawa remains a critical concern for national security decision-makers. Due to the legacy of the U.S. occupation and the islandńˇ╗s key strategic location, Okinawa hosts a disproportionate share of the continuing U.S. military presence. Contents of this report: Overview; August 2012 Status: Logjam on Agreement Endures; Okinawańˇ╗s Strategic Importance; Background: Okinawan History and Grievances; Policy Background to Base Realignment; The Politics of U.S. Basing in Okinawa; Heightened Congressional Involvement; Implementation Challenges in Japan. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
