Between Grand Strategy & Grandstanding: Foreign Policy in Japan (YCAPS-JUMP Seminar)

August 9, 2018 , 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe’s foreign policy strategy has been shaped by international factors such as China’s rising power and by a domestic political atmosphere saturated by the media. Dr. Giulio Pugliese will advance this argument in a presentation that seeks to conceive of a new way of evaluating foreign policy, demonstrating how sources of policy development at the international and domestic level can be combined successfully.

This event is part of the Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies-JUMP seminar series.
