New U.S. Ambassador Presents Credentials

Japanese and American professors and policy leaders will begin a month-long program on the tensions and challenges arising in the Indo-Pacific region, including the impact of the Ukraine crisis.

The Crossley Center for Public Opinion Research and the Consulate-General of Japan in Denver are continuing their two-year-old program of bringing Japanese foreign policy experts together with their counterparts at the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies to discuss the changing conditions affecting the U.S. and Japanese alliance and the peace and prosperity of the Indo-Pacific region.

Some of the questions that have become more salient in the last year:

  • How does the Russian-Chinese relationship affect conditions in the Indo-Pacific?
  • Do events and the Western response in Ukraine harm or strengthen Taiwan’s position?
  • North Korea has started missile tests again. What is the strategy for diplomacy and deterrence after the Trump administration?
  • President Xi Jinping is likely to win another term. What does it mean for diplomacy and security in the Indo-Pacific?

Three new panels are scheduled in March. More details will follow.

  1. Thursday, March 10 - Japan and U.S. Relations in Light of New Administrations and Challenges in the Indo-Pacific
  2. Wednesday, March 16 - U.S., Japan and South Korea Roles in Maintaining a Free and Open Indo-Pacific
  3. Wednesday, March 23 - Position of Taiwan in U.S., Japan and China Relations
