SSUフォーラム: Dr.Alexis Crow 

日時: 2018年05月9日(水)11:30–13:00
場所: 伊藤国際学術研究センター3F 中教室
題目: "Geopolitics: The Opportunity-based Approach"
講演者: Dr. Alexis Crow(Lead Investment Strategist at Price Waterhouse Coopers in New York)
言語: 英語
定員: 40名
主催: 東京大学政策ビジョン研究センター安全保障研究ユニット  
概要: I propose to speak about the sources of Geopolitical tension in advanced economies, and provide an outlook for opportunities.
Firstly, I will provide an overview of the macroeconomic environment highlighting the need for a macroprudential but not pessimistic view of the West. I will then look at the Geopolitical landscape around the world, and shine a spotlight on developing Asia. We can finish by exploring the key areas for growth, and how Asian policymakers and businesses can help to create growth in their own region and beyond. The reduction of geopolitical uncertainty in advanced economies is directly tied to helping people transition from old to new economy jobs and that this is something which developing Asian countries will need to address for their own vitality over the longer term.

題目: "Protean Power: Exploring the Uncertain and Unexpected in World Politics"
講演者: Peter J. Katzenstein 教授(コーネル大学)
言語: 英語
定員: 40名
主催: 東京大学政策ビジョン研究センター安全保障研究ユニット  
概要: This lecture introduces the concept of “protean power” as the basis for a better analysis of unanticipated events in world politics. Protean power is the effect of actors’ agility as they adapt in situations of uncertainty. This definition departs from conventional definitions of power, which focus on actors’ evolving ability to exercise control in situations of calculable risk and their consequent ability to cause outcomes these actors deem desirable. I argue that this conventional view is overly confining; inclusion of protean power in our analytical models helps us to better account for unexpected change in world politics. Notably, actors respond to shifts between risk and uncertainty, in both context and experience, with affirmation, refusal, improvisation, or innovation. In doing so, they create room for control and protean power as effects, rather than causes, of such practices. However, protean power should not replace control power.
These two basic forms of power relate to one another, in a variety of ways, in complex contexts characterized by both risk and uncertainty.

公共政策大学院リサーチセミナー/ 東大国際法研究会
概要: The human rights enterprise is now under assault in a way that hasn’t been seen in years. Not only are rising authoritarian powers openly disdainful of rights principles, which they denounce as decadent and subversive, but powerful constituencies are undermining basic rights protections even in established liberal democracies. How should human rights advocacy and social justice campaigners take stock of these trends and adapt to this challenging environment? 
In this book launch seminar, Professor Jack Snyder (Columbia University) and Professor Leslie Vinjamuri (University of London) will discuss their new book Human Rights Futures, (edited by Stephen Hopgood, Jack Snyder, and Leslie Vinjamuri, with contributions from fifteen prominent social scientists including Sally Merry, Sam Moyn, Kathryn Sikkink, and Beth Simmons). The book debates the effectiveness and prospects for strategies of human rights advocacy. Four contending approaches will be discussed: stay the course, empower rights through political pragmatism, translate rights talk into the vernacular, and subordinate rights talk to more resonant social justice appeals.

SSUフォーラム:James Crabtree 准教授[2018.3.2]

日時: 2018年3月2日(金)11:30–13:00
場所: 伊藤国際学術研究センター3F 特別会議室
講演: The Rise of the Indo-Pacific: Can India and Japan Shape the New Global Order? James Crabtree 准教授(シンガポール国立大学 リー・クアンユー公共政策学院)
言語: 英語
定員: 40名
主催: 東京大学政策ビジョン研究センター安全保障研究ユニット
概要: Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India have drawn closer of late, as both leaders grapple with the challenges of China's rise. At their last meeting in September 2017, Mr. Abe said stronger ties between the two Asian nations could become the "basis to underpin the regional order”. Both have also pushed the idea of the "indo-pacific", while unveiling their own plan to rival the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative: the $40bn Asia-Africa Growth Corridor. But given their respective economic and military limitations, can a new partnership between India and Japan really shape a changing global order? And what would it need in terms of political will and economic resources to succeed?

概要: 日本の脅威認識はどう変化してきたのか。北朝鮮核ミサイル問題をきっかけに軍事衝突が起こる蓋然性をどう評価するのか。中国は習近平総書記の政治報告で2049年に向けて社会主義現代化強国となることを鮮明にしたが、日本への脅威と認識すべきか。中東でスンニ・シーアの争いが激化するとすれば日本へのリスクをどう評価するか。このように日本を取り巻く地政学リスクは拡大しているが、これに応える日本の外交安保政策はどうあるべきか。
