On Wednesday, December 13, 2023, the US-Japan NEXT Alliance Initiative hosted a virtual bilateral dialogue on “US-Japan Command Relationships for New Challenges.” The event was attended by around 30 current and former members of government, the military, think tanks, and academia. The dialogue built upon group discussion at the NEXT Alliance Conferences (NAC) held in March in Tokyo and October in Annapolis. Sasakawa USA is preparing a set of observations and policy recommendations that it will publish early in 2024. In order to test the recommendations and refine them before publication, the Initiative convened this final virtual roundtable to solicit feedback and additional input.

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.
