Overview

This event will be the fourth in a series of five annual conferences on the UK-Japan relationship and opportunities for closer bilateral cooperation.

This year, the conference will explore UK and Japanese approaches on the risks and opportunities – political and economic – facing Asia and Europe. Topics will include the looming Brexit and the future of the EU, the impact of TTIP and TPP, China’s role in Asia’s regional order and the evolution of national identity in Japan and the UK. The concluding session will consider the priority challenges to stability that Europe and Asia will face in the short- to medium-term, outlining possibilities for UK-Japan cooperation.

The UK-Japan Global Seminar Series is funded by the Nippon Foundation and held in partnership with them and the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
