Japan’s Perspectives on the Korean Peninsula

On May 10, the EastWest Institute co-hosted with Japan Society a discussion on how Japan, the world's third-largest economy by GDP, views the emerging issue of Korean Peninsula diplomacy and the latest developments on denuclearization.  

Tokyo-based Jonathan Miller, senior visiting fellow with the Japan Institute of International Affairs and distinguished fellow with the Asia-Pacific Foundation of Canada, led the discussion and offered viewpoints in the lead up to the potential summit between President Donald Trump and his North Korean counterpart, Kim Jong-un. The session also delved into the current state of the U.S.-Japan alliance.

Participants included Professor Robert Dujarric, director of the Institute of Contemporary Asian Studies at Temple University in Tokyo, as well as other Asia-Pacific analysts.
