post date : 2017.01.19

The current Abe administration is in its fifth year in 2017. Current interest in Japanese foreign policy issues and strategy is high, focusing on the results of the Japan-Russia summit meeting in December 2016, building relations with the new American administration starting in January 2017, and the response to actions surrounding Brexit. The instable political situation in neighboring South Korea and the nature of the new US administration’s relations with China and Russia are also key points.


The FPCJ invited foreign policy and security expert Dr. Ken Jimbo, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Policy Management of Keio University, to speak on the outlook for Japanese foreign policy in 2017.
