The Russian invasion of Ukraine shook the world. The war has forced more than 4 million Ukrainians to leave their home country and has resulted in the killing of many civilians, including women and children. Not only does the invasion constitute a serious violation of international law but it also poses a major challenge to the post-Cold War international order. How can we make sense of this war? What led Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine? Are the U.S. and its NATO allies justified in ruling out any military involvement in the conflict? When is the war likely to end and how? What are the implications of the invasion to various regions of the world, such as Europe, the Middle East, and East Asia? In this roundtable, we invite prominent IR scholars to discuss various aspects of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

TIU Global Dialogue 16: Overcoming Isolationism: Japan's Leadership in Promoting Regional Security Multilateralism

This event has ended

Dr. Paul Midford
Professor of International Studies
Department of Transcultural and Global Studies
Meiji Gakuin University

This presentation asks why, in the wake of the Cold War, Japan suddenly reversed years of steadfast opposition to security cooperation with its neighbors. Long isolated and opposed to multilateral agreements, Japan proposed East Asia's first multilateral security forum in the early 1990s, emerging as a regional leader. It explores what led to this surprising about-face and offers a corrective to the misperception that Japan's security strategy is reactive to US pressure and unresponsive to its neighbors. Drawing on newly released official documents and extensive interviews this presentation provides and overview of a quarter century of Japanese leadership in promoting regional security cooperation. It demonstrates that Japan has a much more nuanced relationship with its neighbors and has played a more significant leadership role in shaping East Asian security than has previously been recognized.
