In August 2016, Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe declared a “free and open Indo-Pacific Strategy” to promote global stability and prosperity. The strategy involved partnering two continents, a rapidly growing Asia and a developing Africa, through the linkage of the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The term “Indo-Pacific” has also been used by U.S. President Donald Trump and it featured prominently in the U.S.’s 2017 National Security Strategy report. What are the challenges ahead for the U.S. and Japan in developing the “Indo-Pacific” strategy as they redefine relationships with countries and pursue new opportunities? Two experts from the U.S. and Japan will discuss this timely topic and answer questions from the audience.

Co-sponsored by the Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs
