Strategic Japan is a CSIS Japan Chair initiative to introduce research from Japanese scholars on regional and global challenges and the implications for the U.S.-Japan alliance. 

This year, the Japan Chair invited four scholars to explore elements of the Kishida administration's "realism diplomacy" agenda:

  • Expanding official development assistance

The event will be moderated by CSIS Senior Adviser and Japan Chair, Christopher B. Johnstone.
