He is a Professor of the Faculty of Policy Management at Keio University as well as being concurrently an adjunct Senior Research Fellow at the Canon Institute for Global Studies (CIGS) and the Tokyo Foundation.
We see ourselves at a crossroad with Prime Minister Abe’s surprise announcement to resign. Abe leaves behind a legacy, where in his long reign made 80 visits to other countries engaging in a strategic diplomacy with panoramic perspective of the globe. He built personal relationships with leaders and sold the Japan brand. In this roundtable discussion, Dr.Jimbo will take us through Japan’s foreign and security strategies for the new administration. He will explore what lies ahead and what to watch out in this year of challenging events, in particular the upcoming US Presidential Election.
