Japan’s Strategic Power in International Relations

In Re-rising Japan: Its Strategic Power in International Relations, Yoichiro Sato and Hidekazu Sakai challenge this idea head-on with evidence that Japan is actually a major power in today’s international relations where the interests and power of the United States and China have increasingly clashed over many issues. Join us for a discussion with the authors on Japan’s strengths as well as weaknesses, and the evolution of Tokyo’s strategy in facing challenges from China as well as the shift in U.S. foreign policy.

Japan’s Strategic Power in International Relations

The so-called lost two decades of Japan’s economic power since the early 1990s have generated the idea that Japan is no longer a significant player. Instead, policymakers and academics alike now focus far more on the rise of China. In Re-rising Japan: Its Strategic Power in International Relations,  Yoichiro Sato and Hidekazu Sakai challenge this idea head-on with evidence that Japan is actually a major power in today’s international relations where the interests and power of the United States and China have increasingly clashed over many issues. Join us for a discussion with the authors on Japan’s strengths as well as weaknesses, and the evolution of Tokyo’s strategy in facing challenges from China as well as the shift in U.S. foreign policy.
