Relations between Japan and the Republic of Korea saw a marked improvement in 2023, and strengthened, in parallel, the cooperative Japan-U.S.-South Korea relationship. The lecture will examine the possibilities and potential challenges of this historic bilateral and trilateral collaboration in 2024 and how such cooperation will form policies toward North Korea and Indo-Pacific strategies.
