Dr. Mireya Solís Book Talk- Japan’s Quiet Leadership: Reshaping the Indo-Pacific

Time and Location

September 27, 4pm
Columbia University, SIPA (New York, NY)


Dr. Mireya Solís of the Brookings Institution will address the question of why and how Japan has emerged from the “lost decades” unscathed from the populist wave and a far more consequential actor in the geopolitics of the Indo-Pacific? The book provides a sweeping look at Japan’s domestic economic and political evolution, its economic statecraft, and the array of geopolitical challenges that have triggered a gradual but substantial shift in the country’s security profile.

Her talk will be followed by a conversation with Dr. Gerald Curtis and a Q&A with the audience.
