Organized and Sponsored by the Center for Japanese Studies, University of Michigan. In partnership with the University of Michigan Alumni Association in Japan (UMAAJ)

After the first 100-plus days, the Trump administration's foreign policy is still taking shape and hard to predict. How has the new administration affected the US-Japan relationship and East Asian politics, and how should Japan approach the new political environment? This symposium convenes leading experts to discuss the state of affairs and future directions of regional security, trade relations, and domestic politics in Japan, the US, and Asia.
