Invitation to an International Symposium
International Christian University (ICU)

リベラルな世界秩序の終焉か?

日時:1月30日(月): 13:30 – 18:30
会場:国際基督教大学 東ヶ崎潔記念ダイアログハウス2F

基調講演者:
John Ikenberry (Princeton University)
Kiichi Fujiwara (University of Tokyo)

「自由貿易、多国間主義、同盟、パートナーシップ、民主的連帯、人権」に基づいた戦後世界秩序の核心原理であるリベラルな国際秩序は危機にあるようだ。 中国など非西欧諸国の新政権がアメリカの支配に挑戦する可能性があるなか、ジョンイケベリーは「リベラルな国際主義だけが唯一の選択肢である」という原則に危機は迫っていない一方で、権威の危機が存在する可能性を指摘する。
近年増加する、しばしば右派の大衆政治政党、運動、政治指導者たちによる世論への訴えや選挙における勝利は、国内レベルで自由で民主的な規範を損ない、孤立主義を高め、結局はリベラルな国家秩序が弱体化するのではないかという疑問を提起する。 これは、我々が知る世界の終わりにつながるのだろか? 本シンポジウムでは、こうした挑戦の妥当性について、とりわけ東アジアに着目しながら議論していく。

企業買収(M&A)は、企業の戦略として非常に重要であり、かつ法律的にも様々な問題を包含する重要な事象である。講演者は、本講演において、海外投資の法律実務のなかでも、ベトナムなど社会主義国家の企業買収についても触れながら、現実のLegal Practiceとしての海外投資について議論を喚起しながら、JVやM&A、実際の子会社管理などについての紹介を行う。国際企業法務のなかでも、M&Aの問題は非常に重要な問題である。本講演は、経済、経営、国際関係や政治、法学を学ぶ学生にとって、企業と法という切っても切り離せない関係にある現実を学ぶことができる大変貴重な機会となる。講演者は、海外投資や東南アジアにおけるM&Aの専門家として日本を代表する弁護士であり、長年の経験を有している。このような、経験豊富な弁護士かつ日本を代表する弁護士事務所の一つのパートナー弁護士である内藤加代子弁護士の講演を聞き、また、様々な疑問を弁護士に対して行う機会は大変貴重なものであり、経済、経営、法律、政治、国際関係等にかかわるICUの学生、教員はもとより、その他国際関係全般に関わるICUの学生、教職員にとって貴重な学びの機会となるものと考えられる。

南アジアにおける宗教と政治 @ H-253
5月 18 @ 11:30 AM – 12:40 PM
講演者
Prof. Wilkinson Steven(Yale University)

概要
This lecture examines the relationship between religion and politics in India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka from the colonial period to the present. Why did religion become the dominant cleavage in colonial politics? Why, at least so far, has India done a better job than Pakistan in managing the religious conflicts that many thought would destroy the new state? Why is it that Buddhism, the religion of nonviolence, has been associated with severe conflict in Sri Lanka? Will the new Hindu Nationalist wave in Indian politics today, with its cow protection vigilantes and ‘anti-Rome patrols’ succeed in permanently altering the post-independence secular state?

講演者
村上陽一郎(国際基督教大学 名誉教授)

概要
かつて病気は、患者本人の何らかの「落ち度」と考えられていた。「天刑病」などという言葉さえあった。現在日本では、国民皆保険制度によって、病気にかかった人を互恵の精神で社会全体で責任を持とう、という考え方を立脚点にしている。ある意味でこれは、災害の被害者への国家や自治体の支援制度にも似た、素晴らしい制度である(トランプ政権のこの問題への態度を見れば、よく判るだろう)。しかし、現在、色々な面で、この制度にほころびが見える。この講義では、その点をテーマに、学生諸君と考えてみたい。

不確実なリーダーシップの時代:Gゼロ世界に対する東アジアの応答とミドルパワーの役割 @ International Conference Room, Dialogue House 2F, International Christian University
10月 20 @ 9:30 AM – 5:30 PM

symposium synopsis
The United States’ declining capacity to exert leadership in the global arena will have regional and global consequences in the realms of economics, politics, security and peace and prosperity. The repercussions of this trend are still not understood well but we have seen countries within East Asia offer alternatives. China is promoting the One Belt One Road initiative (BRI) and the Regional Comprehensive Partnership (RCP) as a win-win strategy to build peace and prosperity in the region. Japan, along with 10 other signatories of the TPP are hoping to shape the region through a new trade agreement that sets new trade rules. We have also seen an expansion in the number and quality of security cooperation with countries in the region to deal with growing uncertainty. Even the geographic concept of the Indo-Pacific has gained prominence as different countries are trying to reconceptualise what the region’s shape will be in the decades to come.
With these trends in mind, this workshop goal is twofold. First, it aims to examine how East Asia nations are responding to this decline or as what some scholars call a G-Zero world, one in which no single country can exert leadership. Speakers from India, China, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia will explore what the G-Zero world means for their countries and how they perceive the vacuum in global leadership will be filled by new great power arrangements. This discussion is especially salient now in which populism in the US has led to the election of a President who actively campaigned against globalization and the expansion of trade ties.
Second, this workshop aims to explore the roles of middle power countries in navigating and finding leadership opportunities during an era of uncertainty. At a normative level, middle powers such as Canada and South Korea offer novel paradigms to foster cooperation and understanding that lie outside the security sphere. Developing a deeper understanding of the role of middle powers in inculcating stability into the region can contribute to reducing instability in the region as well as.
