Ambassador Mori to examine role the allies play in geopolitical sphere
The longstanding relationship between the United States and its major ally Japan is the focus of a lecture by Japanese Ambassador and Consul-General Mikio Mori on Tuesday, Feb. 20, at 4 p.m. in Gore Recital Hall in the Roselle Center for the Arts. The talk will examine how the bond between the two countries has deepened, how it is adapting to fast-moving changes in the global geopolitical climate, and what the future holds.
Mori brings his expertise as a longtime Japanese diplomat around the globe to the talk, which is sponsored by UD’s Department of Political Science and International Relations and the College of Arts and Sciences. He has held positions in Europe, Africa and Australia and has served in Japan’s mission to the United Nations. Mori is a frequent speaker at colleges and universities across the U.S.
Researchers and students interested in careers related to diplomacy and foreign policy are encouraged to attend.
The event takes place during the International Relations and Japan Week, which includes other events such as the JSPS symposium on Japanese and international archaeological missions in Afghanistan.
