Geostrategic Opportunities in East Asia: Perspectives on the U.S.- Japan- China Trilateral Relations in Times of COVID-19

The Japan America Society of Southern California, in partnership with the Sasakawa Peace Foundation and the National Association of Japan-America Societies (NAJAS), is proud to present a virtual fireside discussion exploring the unique geostrategic challenges and opportunities in East Asia. The signing of the U.S.-Japan Security Treaty in 1951 has been the cornerstone of peace and security for over 70 years. But, with new administrations in power, the ever-present threat of the COVID-19 global pandemic, and the rise of China’s influence, how will the U.S.-Japan alliance adapt to Asia’s rapidly evolving geopolitical environment. We are pleased to welcome two experts on the subject, Dr. Sheila Smith from the Council on Foreign Relations, and Dr. Akio Takahara from the Graduate School of Public Policy at the University of Tokyo to share their insights on how these issues can help shape the future of U.S.-Japan relations. Dr. Saori Katada from the University of Southern California will be moderating the discussion.
