About the UK–Japan Global Seminar Series
The UK–Japan Global Seminar Series aims to explore how the UK and Japan can work together more effectively to address a number of critical challenges that the world is currently facing in the economic, security and social spheres, broadly defined.
Both countries are in a position to capitalize more fully on their respective comparative advantages in order to confront these common challenges. Closer cooperation will offer increased scope and opportunity to identify common strategic priorities and to devise appropriate solutions.
To this end, each year, the UK–Japan Global Seminar Series convenes an annual conference, held alternately in London and Tokyo, to discuss these shared concerns and identify practical ways to deepen UK–Japan cooperation. The project also produces a range of publications, and hosts discussion groups to provide opportunities for policy experts, analysts and decision-makers from the UK and Japan to assess their respective approaches to a range of challenges.
The UK–Japan Global Seminar Series is funded by The Nippon Foundation and is held in partnership with The Nippon Foundation and the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.
