Japan’s Foreign Policy Challenges in East Asia: Views from the Next Generation

in Program

A new Stimson Center report, with essays written by four
Japanese policy analysts, takes a close look at the challenges Japan faces in
the coming years. The topics covered in this volume – Japan’s relations with
China, South Korea, North Korea and Southeast Asia – are all issues of intense
policy interest in Washington as well as Tokyo. 

The report, titled “Japan’s Foreign Policy Challenges
in East Asia: Views from the Next Generation”
 was edited by Yuki Tatsumi,
Senior Associate in the East Asia program at Stimson. The authors include Ken
Jimbo, associate professor at Japan’s Keio University; Junya Nishino, associate
professor at Keio University; Yasuyo Sakata, professor of international
relations at Japan’s Kanda University of International Studies; and Chikako
Kawakatsu Ueki, professor of international relations at Waseda University in
Tokyo. After a round of workshops for each topic, the project culminated in a final publication launch event at the Stimson Center.
