Japan in the World Order: Japan and USA
17. marts kl. 15.00 - 17.00 CET
We hereby have the pleasure of inviting you to attend the second lecture in our series on Japan in the current world order taking place in the Spring and Fall of 2023.
This lecture features Dr. Mike Mochizuki, Professor at George Washington University, as the main speaker. He will focus on Japan-US relations, which form the security umbrella and a counterweight to China’s growing influence in the Indo-Pacific.
The rules-based world order comprises not only trade and economic relations but also issues concerning security, climate change, digitalization, social development, and, not least, foreign policy and security. As the third largest economy in the world, Japan will be a strong partner in framing these issues on the global arena. Japan’s stance on international norms and rules is shared with most countries in Europe and builds an important platform for future collaboration. However, in order to strengthen and develop EU-Japan relations, an informed understanding of Japan’s regional and global role and interests is needed.
Funded by the Scandinavia-Japan Sasakawa Foundation and in cooperation with The Department of International Economics, Government and Business at Copenhagen Business School, The Danish Foreign Policy Society is hosting a series of lectures with prominent Japanese scholars to provide a deeper understanding of the challenges facing Japan in a changing world order.
Professor Mike Masato Mochizuki is Chair Professor at the Elliot School of International Affairs and the Department of Political Science at George Washington University. He holds a PhD in Political Science from Harvard University. Professor Mochizuki has published and edited numerous English publications and is currently researching the U.S.-Japan alliance and the rise of China.
Ambassador and former Chairman of the Danish Government’s Security Analysis group Michael Zilmer-Johns will serve as discussant and initiate the discussion following Professor Mochizuki’s lecture.
