Chatham House Series:
Japan’s G7 Leadership: Defending the Liberal Order Amid Crisis
This event, held in partnership with Chatham House, considers how G7 countries should best respond to global economic and security challenges in order to defend the liberal international order.
In May 2023, Japan will host the G7 summit in Hiroshima, where leaders of the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany and Italy will come to discuss the most urgent challenges facing the world.
This year’s summit takes place against a backdrop of continued global economic and political instability from the war in Ukraine to intensifying competition between China and the West.
The speakers discuss Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida’s priorities at the summit and consider how G7 countries should best respond to global economic and security challenges in order to defend the liberal international order.
This event is the third of a three-part series held in partnership with Chatham House. You can watch the first event, which looked at Africa-Japan relations here, and the second event, which focused on the UK and Japan’s engagement with Southeast Asia, here.
