    • Research Fellow, Manohar Parrikar IDSA, Dr. Jagannath Panda's article ‘Future of the post-Abe India-Japan partnership’ has been published by Asia Times.

      The piece deals with critical issues by raising a few points that India found in Abe’s Japan a major economic and strategic ally. Abe championed India-Japan bilateral and multilateral synergy while nurturing a great friendship between the two like-minded nations. However, whether this synergy can survive will depend on his successor’s outlook.

    • The second part of Research Fellow, Manohar Parrikar IDSA, Dr. Jagannath Panda's article ‘What will Japan's China policy be post-Abe?’ has been published in ‘Asia Times’ on September 02, 2020.

      The piece argues that Shinzo Abe certainly awakened a previously silent Japanese society on the China issue. In fact, from the very outset of his term in office, Abe had a clear and apparent China outlook. Will his successors have a similar approach? It seems very unlikely.

    • Research Fellow, Manohar Parrikar IDSA, Dr. Jagannath Panda's piece ‘Will Japan’s Indo-Pacific activism survive after Abe?’ has been published by ‘The Asia Times’ on September 01, 2020.

      The article argues that Abe, in his speech, had said once that it was vital for Japan to remain a “rules promoter, a commons’ guardian, and an effective ally.” For Japan’s Indo-Pacific growth and activism to survive post-Abe, his successor must accept, even if he does not endorse all of Abe's other policies, this vision for Japan.
