The past few years have seen the rapid development of Japan's leadership across different dimensions of global economic governance, trade, regional security, infrastructure development, as well as data and cyber governance, to name a few. But what are the primary drivers behind Japan's new phase of international leadership, and what are the implications for Japan's partners, such as Canada?
The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, in partnership with the University of British Columbia, the University of Toronto, the University of Tokyo, Pacific Forum, UC Berkeley and UC San Diego, is proud to present Japan’s Leadership in the Liberal International Order: Impact and Policy Opportunities for Partners, a new series that analyzes the various factors behind Japan's rising global leadership and the opportunities for Canada.
This new series encapsulates high-level policy papers from the international workshop organized by the Centre for Japanese Research at the University of British Columbia that took place January 24-25, 2020 in Vancouver, Canada. Key themes and topics include Japanese leadership in a rules-based international order, global trade and economic governance, and in the Free and Open Indo-Pacific (FOIP).
