Video report: Post-COVID-19 Geopolitics —Japan’s Role in The Future of International Health Cooperation (Prof. Kayo Takuma)

post date : 2020.06.26

The global spread of COVID-19 has reinforced the importance of international health cooperation. However, the dispute between the U.S. and China over COVID-19, as well as actions by other countries, has also forced the international community to recognize the reality of the politicization of pandemic responses. With the World Health Organization and other frameworks for international health cooperation now at risk, what kind of system should the international community build for health cooperation? And with the U.S. and China continuing to face off with each other, what role should Japan play in this area?


The FPCJ invited Prof. Kayo Takuma, a professor at the Graduate School of Law and Politics of Tokyo Metropolitan University, to hold an online briefing on this topic.

The briefing had a total of 26 participants including journalists from China, France, Indonesia, South Korea, Singapore and Spain.
