The US Presidential Election and Japan’s New Cabinet (Dr. Toshihiro Nakayama, Professor, Faculty of Policy Management, Keio University)

post date : 2020.10.29


The 2020 US presidential election is entering its final stages, with voting to take place on November 3. With increased numbers of mail-in ballots due to the impact of COVID-19, the final results of the election, which is expected to be close, may not be known until over a week later.


The FPCJ has invited Keio University Professor Dr. Toshihiro Nakayama to hold an online briefing on the topic of the US after the presidential election and Japan after the start of its new cabinet. He will discuss what significance the results of the presidential election will have on the international community, and in particular Japan.
