    Join YCAPS for our inaugural roundtable in Fussa for 2022! Our Roundtable series is designed to be a more personal, by-RSVP discussion where attendees connect to explore contemporary topics.

     

    Russia’s sudden invasion of Ukraine affected more than just Ukraine’s neighbors in Europe. Ripple effects of the war have already begun to shift security postures in the Asia-Pacific, including China’s perceptions of a potential Taiwan invasion. Come join us for dinner and discussion on the implications of the war in Ukraine for the U.S.-Japan Alliance and for the region at large.
