Video report: Japanese Diplomacy 75 Years After World War II (Dr. Masayuki Tadokoro, Keio University)

post date : 2020.07.14

As this year marks 75 years since the end of World War II, it is a good opportunity to consider the future of Japan, which has spent those years as a peace-loving nation engaged in international cooperation. The worldwide spread of the COVID-19 pandemic this year has also had an impact on areas including the economy, foreign affairs, and social activities. At the same time, the international community is being faced with major issues, such as the heightened intensity of the power struggle between the U.S. and China. In this fluid international situation, with concerns of a hollowing out of international cooperation, what path should Japan take forward, and what role should it play in the international community?


The FPCJ invited Dr. Masayuki Tadokoro, an expert in international politics and a professor at the Keio University Faculty of Law, to discuss this topic.

The briefing had a total of 30 participants including journalists from China, France, Germany, Indonesia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, UK and USA.
