Japan and China have been facing a variety of difficult challenges since the second half of 1990s, particularly in the past ten years. In contrast to most analyses that focus on power shift theory, Professor Kokubun will discuss the domestic factors of politics in the two countries.
Ryosei Kokubun is president of the National Defense Academy of Japan and Executive Vice President of the National Institute for Research Advancement (NIRA). He taught law and politics at Keio University until 2012, where he was dean and faculty of the Graduate School of Law and Politics. His research topics focus on international relations in East Asia with a particular focus on China-Japan relations. Check back for more information closer to the event date.
