PUBLIC PANEL DISCUSSION Redefining Japan & the U.S.-Japan Alliance (OFF-SITE EVENT)
1 – 4 pm
The U.S.-Japan alliance is at a crossroads. As Washington attempts to forge a new paradigm for U.S. foreign policy in its war against terrorism, Japan, by virtue of its role as a major American ally, is being compelled to re-examine its own national interests and posture in the world. Join a panel of distinguished foreign policy experts as they discuss the impact of the Bush administration’s new security and foreign policy initiatives on the U.S.-Japan alliance and Japan’s evolving role on the global stage.
