Recently arisen circumstances such as the war between Ukraine and Russia pose a serious threat to the global balance of forces – the current situation compels all of us to verify previously known paradigms of international politics. The question is – where does Japan stand in all of this?
“Land of the Rising or Setting Sun? – Japan’s challenges for the third decade of the 21st century” is an international conference, organized by the Institute of the Middle and Far East of the Jagiellonian University and the Japanese Department of the Far East Students’ Association under the Jagiellonian University. It will be held on the 10th of May in hybrid form. The event acts as a second edition of international conferences organized by the Japanese Section of the Far East Students’ Association, following last year’s conference titled “Abe’s Japan - The legacy of Japan’s longest-serving Prime Minister” with Yoshino Naoyuki gracing us as the keynote speaker.
Japan is currently at a point where the country and its people face a multitude of interconnected issues – starting from the slow economic recovery following the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent passing of Abe Shinzō to the issues following the nation for a long time such as an aging population. Moreover, nowadays we observe accelerating changes in international power in Asia and beyond – the war between Ukraine and Russia is an event heavily influencing the region, challenging Japan’s strategic security. Recent years lead us to believe that China and its aggressive attitude can also be a serious threat to the balance of power we currently know.
Keeping this in mind, we would like to use this conference as an opportunity to investigate the challenges that are on the horizon in the current decade.
The Embassy of Japan in Poland is a honorary patron of the conference
