It is a great honour for the Japan Chapter of the Asian Society of International Law to host a special lecture by Mr. TSURUOKA Koji. The former Ambassador of Japan to the UK has held a number of important positions in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, such as Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs, Assistant Deputy Minister for Foreign Policy, and Director-General of the International Legal Affairs Bureau. He was Chief Negotiator for the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) and Agent of the Japanese Government for the ICJ case of Whaling in the Antarctic.
For international lawyers, diplomats, and academics, this would be a valuable opportunity to hear directly from a key person who embodies “The Rule of Law in the International Community” Policy of Japan in recent years. The Japan Chapter welcomes all participants from inside and outside the Chapter.
