The U.S.-Japan Alliance: Beyond Northeast Asia

A transformed alliance of the world’s two largest economies—Japan and the United States—could have far-reaching effects on issues such as trade, development, climate change and international security. On May 8, the Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies at Brookings and the Slavic Research Center at Hokkaido University hosted a forum to examine the U.S.-Japan alliance and its potential for addressing issues beyond the Northeast Asia region.

A distinguished panel of Japanese and American experts discussed how the alliance can be relevant to new global challenges in various regions.
