Japan’s Global Diplomacy: Views From The Next Generation

in Program

Japan’s Global Diplomacy: Views From The Next Generation aims to identify key relationships emerging under Prime Minister Abe’s “diplomacy that takes a panoramic view of the world map” (chikyuugi wo fukan suru gaiko) initiative and seeks to promote the policy-relevant work of rising Japanese scholars working on these issues among the Washington, DC policymaking community. Project participants will examine Japan-Australia relations, Japan-India relations, Japan-Europe relations, and Japan-Russia relations. After a round of workshops and public seminars for each topic, the project will culminate in a final publication launch event at the Stimson Center.

The final Stimson Center report addresses Japan’s national interests and policy goals, the background and context of each relationship, the challenges and obstacles to Japan’s policy goals, prospects for US-Japan engagement and policy recommendations for the issue areas. The report will be edited by Stimson Center Senior Associate Yuki Tatsumi. Project scholars will include Dr. Tomohiko Satake, on Japan-Australia relations; Mr. Takaaki Asano, on Japan-India relations; Dr. Michito Tsuruoka, on Japan-Europe relations; and Dr. Yoko Hirose, on Japan-Russia relations.
