The U.S.-Japan Alliance: Voices from the Next-Generation

with Pacific Forum, アメリカ大使館 U.S. Embassy Tokyo and Tokyo International University

English (Scroll down for Japanese):

For over six decades, the U.S.-Japan Alliance has been underwriting stability and prosperity in Asia. Political leaders from both sides describe it as 'the cornerstone of peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific Region.' Today, while the Alliance continues to serve its purpose, challenges abound. To help chart the strategic direction of this important relationship, next-generation Japanese and American leaders from academia, public policy, military, and industry, between the ages of 21 and 29, are invited to submit paper proposals that discuss specific issue-areas in U.S.-Japan relations.

10 paper proposals will be chosen whose authors will form the 2021-2022 cohort. Cohort members will be invited to join an in-person workshop on U.S.-Japan Alliance issues in Tokyo in Spring 2022, and will also have opportunities to attend future conferences and workshops related to U.S.-Japan relations, and regional security, sponsored by Pacific Forum.

An honorarium of US$ 1,000 each will be provided to the top six authors whose work will be published in an edited volume.
