Speaker: Saori N. Katada (Professor of International Relations, Univ. of Southern California)

How is Japan coping with the US-China economic competition, and how has the Japanese government formulated its trade policies and infrastructure investment strategy?  The talk will focus on Japan's geoeconomic strategy in the Indo-Pacific, whose concept has become prominent within Japanese foreign policy since its introduction in the early 2000s. On the one hand, this regional framework has presented distinct opportunities for Japan to shape the regional economic order through enhanced economic connectivity and active rule making. On the other hand, there are looming challenges for Japan to maneuver the delicate balance within the US-China competition.

Saori N. Katada is Professor of International Relations at the University of Southern California. Her book Japan's New Regional Reality: Geoeconomic Strategy in the Asia-Pacific was published by Columbia University Press in 2020, and the Japanese version by Nikkei Business Publications in 2022. She has recently co-authored two other books: The BRICS and Collective Financial Statecraft (Oxford University Press, 2017), and Taming Japan's Deflation: The Debate over Unconventional Monetary Policy (Cornell University Press, 2018). She has a Ph. D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Political Science), and a B. A. from Hitotsubashi University (Tokyo). Before joining USC, she served as a researcher at the World Bank in Washington D.C., and as International Program Officer at the UNDP in Mexico City.
