The Canon Institute for Global Studies (CIGS) hosted a seminar on November 17, 2016 inviting Dr. Sheila A. Smith from The Council on Foreign Relations in USA. This is the summary of speech and Q&A.



Abstract of the Speech
As policymakers seek to strengthen ties between the U.S. and Japan, the alliance is facing new pressures within each society. A new round of tensions over historical memory surrounding the 70th anniversary of World War II spilled over to affect the alliance for the first time. Moreover, worries about the U.S. election have raised questions about the strategic bargain long at the heart of our relationship. With the U.S. November presidential election as backdrop, Smith will compare and contrast some of the ways the alliance is being reconsidered in Japan and the U.S.
