Details Since the end of the Cold War, Japan's security environment has changed significantly. While, on the global level, the United States is still Japan's most important security partner, the nature of the partnership has changed as a result of shifting demands from the United States, new international challenges such as the North Korean nuclear threat and the rise of China. Moreover, Japan has been confronted with new, ‘non-traditional’ security threats such as international terrorism, the spread of infectious diseases, or global environmental problems. On the domestic level, the demographic change, labour migration, economic decline, workplace insecurity, and a weakening inpact of policy initiatives challenge the sustainability of the lifestyle of many Japanese and have led to a heightened sense of insecurity among the Japanese public.
