Global Conversations MINNEAPOLIS: The U.S.-Japan Alliance in an Evolving Indo-Pacific
September 18 @ 6:00 pm CDT/ Free
The U.S.-Japan Alliance has underpinned Indo-Pacific security and prosperity for over seven decades. This security alliance has in turn led to cooperation and partnership between the two countries on political, economic, humanitarian, and other issues emblematic of their shared values. Today, the many facets of U.S.-Japan relations stretch across the United States. How strong are U.S.-Japan ties, and how do they affect the United States? What is the current role of this alliance, and how is it evolving in response to changing Indo-Pacific and global developments? Can U.S.-Japan relations develop in the future to the benefit of both countries?
Join us for a discussion to address these questions featuring former U.S. Director for National Intelligence and Commander of U.S. Pacific Command, Admiral Dennis C. Blair (ret.), Chairman and Distinguished Senior Fellow at Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA, and Dr. Satu Limaye, Vice President and Director of the East-West Center in Washington, who will discuss the significance of and possibilities going forward for the U.S.-Japan alliance. The Q&A portion of the program will be moderated by Liz Brailsford, Chief Operating Officer at the World Affairs Councils of America.
Sponsored by the Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA and members of Global Minnesota. Presented in partnership with the Friends of the Minneapolis Central Library, Hennepin County Library – Minneapolis Central, and World Affairs Council of America.
