Dr John Nilsson-Wright, University Senior Lecturer in Modern Japanese Politics and International Relations, speaks to Bill Emmott and Masayuki Tadokoro about Japan's changing regional and international role in the first of a new series of podcasts on Japan and the World, launched at Chatham House. In the face of new challenges, Japan's government is becoming more active in foreign affairs. The speakers explore Japan's relationship with the UK, territorial disputes with China, the nuclear threat from North Korea and who the Japanese government might like to see win the upcoming US election.
