Axis of Authoritarians

Implications of China-Russia Cooperation for the United States and Japan


On November 30, 2018, NBR convened a select group of academic, government, and business leaders to discuss key themes from both the book Axis of Authoritarians: Implications of China-Russia Cooperation and a forthcoming special report on regional perspectives of China-Russia cooperation. This roundtable discussion addressed China-Russia cooperation across the domains of international politics, international security, and international trade from the perspectives of the United States and Japan. It also assessed strategic implications of these dynamics for Northeast Asia and explored policy options for Japan and the U.S.-Japan alliance.
