Keio University PhD Candidate Roundtable

March 13, 2024 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

On Wednesday, March 13, 2024, the US-Japan NEXT Alliance Initiative hosted a group of PhD candidates and their academic advisors from Keio University for a roundtable on their research topics. The group was part of the “Armitage Program” at Keio, led by Keio professors Dr. Yuichi Hosoya (professor of international politics), Dr. Motohiro Tsuchiya, Vice President for Global Engagement and Information Technology, and Professor Koichiro Tanaka, of the Graduate School of Media and Governance. The three candidates, Rintaro Inoue, Hirohito Ogi, and Yoshiyuki Sagara are researchers at the Institute of Geoeconomics and are each looking into different aspects of the current security landscape of the Indo-Pacific region.  Together with Sasakawa USA President Satohiro Akimoto and Sr. Director Jim Schof, along with Professor Andrew Oros of Washington College, the group discussed each dissertation topic in turn, considered various linkages to (implications for) the US-Japan alliance, and provided feedback to the young scholars.

The US-Japan NEXT Alliance Initiative is a forum for bilateral dialogue, networking, and the development of joint recommendations involving a wide range of policy and technical specialists (in and out of government) to stimulate new alliance connections across foreign, security, and technology policy areas. Established by Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA with support from the Nippon Foundation, the goal is to help improve the alliance and how it serves shared interests, preparing it for emerging challenges within an increasingly complex and dynamic geostrategic environment. Launched in 2021, the Initiative includes two overlapping lines of effort: 1) Foreign & Security Policy, and 2) Technology & Innovation Connections. The Initiative is led by Sr. Director James Schoff.
