Japan’s Changing Diplomatic and Security Practice – A Research Workshop

27 October 2017, London

How far is Japanese policy changing? Progression or break with the past?


This workshop, organised by King’s Japan Programme together with Free University of Berlin, and sponsored by the Japan Foundation, tackles the relationship between recent changes in Japanese domestic policy institutions and Japan’s diplomatic and security practice.


The workshop will showcase expert discussion on Japan’s changing decision-making and policy output in several key fields pertaining national security: foreign economic policy, arms exports, diplomatic negotiations, free trade agreement negotiations, military planning, and economic development statecraft. Following one day of closed door discussion, experts will engage with interested audience on the morning of Friday October 27 to present their most recent findings.
