From taking the lead to ensure that the Trans-Pacific Partnership thrives even without the United States to concluding a deal with the European Union for a free trade agreement, Japan has been taking an active role in ensuring that free and fair trade rules prevail through a multilateral approach. At the same time, there has been a significant change in how political power leadership within Japan is defined, particularly under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Join us for a discussion on how Japan is navigating changes in global trade rules, its evolving economic relations with the United States, and domestic expectations for Japan on the international stage.

This event is held jointly with the Social Science Research Council’s New Voice from Japan initiative.
