This two-day conference will assess the role of the nation state in addressing global challenges, with particular reference to the UK and Japan. It will consider the contributions and limitations of the nation state in confronting and resolving pressing international problems and in fostering a proactive and effective response to such problems by international organizations. Specifically, the conference will provide an opportunity to consider what role, either singly, jointly or in combination with other international actors, Japan and the UK might play in addressing these challenges.

Please note this event will take place in Tokyo, Japan. Attendance is by invitation only.
