Japan’s Security Renaissance:
New Directions in Regional and US-Japan Relations

Organized by
The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (CGP)

Japan is the key U.S. ally in Asia, in a new presidential era when the role of allies is being called into question. As the third largest economy in the world and one of the world’s largest military spenders, what role will Japan play in U.S. Asia policy and in regional affairs? Professor Andrew Oros will seek to answer these questions in relation to his new book, “Japan’s Security Renaissance: New Policies and Politics for the Twenty-First Century. The talk will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Prof. Ryo Sahashi (Kanagawa University).

Dr. Andrew Oros is Professor of Political Science & International Studies and Director of International Studies at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland. Oros is a specialist on the international and comparative politics of East Asia and the advanced industrial democracies, with an emphasis on contending approaches to managing security. He is author or co-author of three books on Japan’s evolving security policies, over a dozen scholarly articles and book chapters, and numerous short policy briefs.

He earned his PhD in political science at Columbia University, an M.Sc from the London School of Economics, and his B.A. from the University of Southern California.
