Seminar | French-Japanese views on hybrid threats

Lundi 03 février 2020


The question of hybrid warfare is usually studied in the context of NATO's geographic scope. Much less of our attention about this phenomenon is drawn towards the rest of the world. Yet, Asia is a land of intense practice of multiple types of hybrid warfare such as irregular warfare, information warfare, gray zone warfare and cyber warfare. It therefore provides numerous interesting case studies that could improve our understanding of this multifaceted concept.

The Japanese National Institute for Defense Studies (NIDS) and IRSEM join hands to explore the question of hybrid threats in Asia from both French and Japanese points of view. Divided into two panels, this seminar will first discuss the theoretical debates around this concept in Asia, mainly looking at the Japanese, Chinese, North Korean and Russian perspectives, and then present some particular case studies.
