The international order confronts significant challenges, including intensifying geopolitical tensions in Asia and Europe, new forms of geoeconomic competition and weaponized interdependence, and globalized problems necessitating unprecedented societal transformations. In this symposium, a distinguished group of speakers will offer their insights about global challenges and potential solutions in the domains of international security, economic relations, and societal transformation. The symposium will consider the role that Japan, Canada, and the United States can play along with other G7 partners in confronting global challenges, building on the progress of the Hiroshima G7 meeting in May 2023.
The event will be jointly hosted by the Centre for the Study of Global Japan, G7 Research Group, and Bill Graham Centre at the University of Toronto with generous support from the Consulate-General of Japan in Toronto.
