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 two scholars to explore dimensions of Japan’s strategic approach to the Global South, as highlighted in Prime Minister Kishida's speech during his visit to Washington, D.C. in 2023 and the G7 Hiroshima Summit.
