Abstract

This chapter analyses Philippine-Japan security ties from the Philippine perspective. It examines the external and domestic factors behind their increased security cooperation and explores the status of this security partnership. It argues that China’s maritime expansion in East Asia negatively affected both Japan and the Philippines, which in turn led to a deepening of their security partnership. The chapter predicts that despite recent changes in the Philippine government, the Philippines has a strong interest in further deepening the security partnership with Japan.
