Join Hudson Institute Japan Chair Fellow Masashi Murano, Senior Fellow Nadia Schadlow, and expert panelists Elbridge Colby, Nobushige Takamizawa, and Sugio Takahashi for a discussion on deepening the strategic collaboration of the U.S.- Japan alliance.

Following the recent summit between President Biden and Prime Minister Suga, it’s clear that the U.S.-Japan alliance is strong, but there are many challenges that the two powers must confront together. These include re-prioritizing an expanding range of security issues—including the threat from Beijing—the impact of the Global Posture Review on the Indo-Pacific region, and redefining of the roles, missions, and capabilities of the U.S. forces and the Japan Self-Defense Forces.

To deal with these complex challenges, the United States and Japan must first do two things. First, there must be coherence between the national security strategies and defense strategies. Second, further integrate the strategies of the U.S.-Japan alliance. Dual strategic alignment will be crucial to making effective use of our limited time and resources, and to enhance our competitiveness. Please join Hudson’s distinguished panel for a discussion on these timely issues.
