Chatham House


The UK-Japan Global Seminar series launched with the event ‘UK–Japan Global Seminar: Fostering Strategic Partnerships’ at Chatham House on 20-21 June 2013. The seminar marked the first in a five-year series, held alternately between London and Tokyo, to examine the UK-Japanese relationship and think strategically about areas of mutual interest in the short to medium term. Through four sessions on the economy, security, energy and environment, and frameworks for cooperation, the inaugural seminar explored Japanese views of key international developments and how Japan approaches these from a domestic and regional perspective, while also identifying areas of convergence with and divergence from the United Kingdom and Europe.
