In this episode, we invited two distinguished experts Dr. Hal Brands and Dr. Zack Cooper to hold a discussion, "Challenges facing the U.S. and Japan in 2024: Russia-Ukraine War, Middle East, China, and the U.S. Presidential Election." Since the beginning of the Biden administration, the U.S. has faced three regional security issues: Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the war between Israel and Hamas, and competiton with China. In addition, the U.S. presidential election is coming up in 2024 amidst these circumstances. How does this destabilizing security environment and dynamics of domestic politics affect the U.S. strategy, which wants to focus on strategic competition with China? And what are the roles and challenges of the Japan-U.S. alliance under this circumstance? In this episode, Dr. Brands and Dr. Cooper discuss a wide range of issues, including the current international order and the U.S.-China relations, the impact of the U.S. domestic politics, and their implications for the Japan-U.S. alliance and the security of the Indo-Pacific region, such as the South China Sea and Taiwan Strait.
