How Japan dealt with the Trump Shock: Japan-U.S. relations and its implications to East Asia

Tuesday, August 20, 2019 | 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm


The 2016 U.S. Presidential election was a shock to the entire world, including Japan. Yet, Japan maintains a stronger relationship with the U.S. under Trump compared to other western-style democracies and traditional allies. Why does Japan fare so well in its dealings with Trump and will this trend continue or reverse?

Join Dr. Toshihiro Nakayama, Professor, Faculty of Policy Management, Keio University, Japan; Adjunct Fellow, Japan Institute of International Affairs; and Japan Fellow at the Wilson Center in Washington DC as he leads a talk on Japan’s strategy of adaptation in the context of East Asia international relations.
