MILWAUKEE — University of Tokyo Professor Fumiaki Kubo, one of Japan’s leading experts on the United States, will be the featured guest in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, Feb. 28, at 12:15 p.m. in the Lubar Center at Marquette University Law School’s Eckstein Hall.

Kubo is the A. Barton Hepburn Professor of American Government and History in the University of Tokyo’s Graduate Schools for Law and Politics. During his visit to the Law School, Kubo will discuss the current relationship between the U.S. and Japan, from a political, national security and economic perspective. What impact has the Trump administration had on that relationship, and how have Japan and East Asia been affected by an increasingly provocative North Korea? Kubo serves as a senior fellow at The Tokyo Foundation, is a member of the U.S.–Japan Conference on Cultural and Educational Interchange and is a former Japan scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center.

Gousha, an award-winning broadcast journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha’s “On the Issues” conversations with newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars and conferences on significant issues of public importance, the Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.

The event is open to members of the general public at no cost; registration is required and is available online.
