What is RIIPA?

Tosh Minohara, Chairman

The recent geopolitical shifts taking place in the Indo-Pacific region highlight the importance of deepening the understanding among the countries which share common values in the region. They also make clear the pressing need for exchange and discussion between civilians and security experts in uniform. With this as the chief motive, RIIPA was established in Kobe, Japan on April 2019. However, true to our motto, “Cogitamus, ergo Agimus (We think, therefore we act),” RIIPA aims to be much more than a think tank therefore strives to be a non-profit organization that can act proactively in order to contribute to the stability and peace of the region. In order to achieve these objectives, RIIPA will organize an annual symposium – RIPPA International Security Symposium in Kansai – (RISSK), seminars – Indo-Pacific Security Forum (IPSEF) – JSDF base visits – RIIPA Field Seminars (RFS) and exchanges with neighboring democracies.
