Special VIP Breakfast Event
Join us for Breakfast with Japan expert, Dr. Sheila Smith. She is in Seattle to speak at the World Affairs Council and has consented to speak at breakfast on Tuesday morning.
This is an informal, intimate opportunity to hear from a special Japan expert. We will have a special area set aside at the Portage Bay Cafe, have a seat, order breakfast (separate checks) and get an update on Japan politics and policy.
Limited to 20 attendees. Please register. This is a no cost event for members except for your own cost of breakfast.
Sheila A. Smith, an expert on Japanese politics and foreign policy, is senior fellow for Japan studies at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). She is the author of Intimate Rivals: Japanese Domestic Politics and a Rising China (Columbia University Press, 2015) and Japan's New Politics and the U.S.-Japan Alliance (Council on Foreign Relations, June 2014). Her current research focuses on how geostrategic change in Asia is shaping Japan's strategic choices. In the fall of 2014, Smith began a new project on Northeast Asian Nationalisms and Alliance Management.
