Date & Time November 17, 2020 8:00pm - 9:00pm

What is Prime Minister Abe Shinzo’s legacy on Japanese foreign policy? What does his departure mean for Japan and the region’s future? This Tuesday, we welcome Mr. Nicholas Szechenyi to talk about Japan's Post-Abe future. Mr. Szechenyi is Deputy Director of the Japan Chair and Senior Fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), one of the most prestigious foreign policy think tanks in the US. His research focuses on U.S.-Japan relations and U.S.-East Asia relations. In 2009, he was selected as an inaugural fellow of the U.S.-Japan Network for the Future program established by the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Foundation. Prior to that, he was a news producer for Fuji Television, where he covered U.S. policy in Asia and domestic politics.
