Student Spotlight: Joshua D. Archer

Jump to Comments

Joshua Archer, a graduate student in the International Policy Studies program, recently participated in the US-Japan Strategic Dialogue, a Track-II dialogue co-hosted by Pacific Forum CSIS and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).

This year’s dialogue reaffirmed the importance of the US-Japan alliance, but also highlighted the uncertainties about its direction and functions. The speakers focused on the national security concerns of both parties, with a view to identifying areas of convergence where enhanced alliance cooperation might be possible.

Joshua’s participation was sponsored by the Pacific Forum Young Leaders Program. As a member of the Young Leaders program, he networked among the senior level participants, observed the dialogue, and also contributed meaningfully to discussions.  As an additional assignment, the Young Leaders have a preparatory conference, and a post-conference assignment.  This assignment will be published in the conference report.

If you are interested in finding out how you can participate in future US-Japan Strategic Dialogue events or the Pacific Forum Young Leaders Program, feel free to contact Joshua Archer or Dr. Tsuneo Akaha for more information.

  • Hi GSIPM! I would love to chat with you sometime as I have noticed occasional blog posts about Student and Faculty spotlights. I think it would be nice to coordinate efforts and highlight some of these folks in the drop-up menus on the main site. What do you think?
