Connecting People & Ideas to Advance Mutual Interests in U.S.-Asia Relations

On December 10th at 7:30pm ET, the Mansfield Foundation will host Dr. Crystal Pryor, Mr. James L. Schoff, and Dr. Kenji Kushida for a discussion on how the United States and Japan can and must align their policy-making strategies in order to maintain preeminence in the cyber domain and counter growing threats in the Indo-Pacific. Especially as state-sponsored cyber attacks and intellectual property theft from bad actors rise, both nations have much to gain from presenting a united front in rules-setting at the outset of a new digital age.

Dr. Pryor and Mr. Schoff will examine the existing gaps in the U.S. and Japanese technology policies, what driving factors should shape new frameworks, and delve into why bilateral collaboration on this issue is necessary, especially vis-a-vis China’s rise as a technological superpower. Dr. Kushida will use his own expertise in the topic to guide the discussion as moderator.
