Takeshi Yuzawa received his PhD in International Relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Prior to joining Hosei University, he was a research fellow at the Japan Institute of International Affairs (JIIA), a research think tank affiliated with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan. He is the author of Japan’s Security Policy and the ASEAN Regional Forum: The Search for Multilateral Security in the Asia-Pacific (Routledge). He has also published articles in international peer-reviewed journals as well as numerous book chapters in edited volumes.
Professor Yuzawa’s research interests include international relations theory and international relations of East Asia. His on-going research project, funded by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, examines the prospect of international rule-making and regional order in East Asia by illuminating the process of contestation over legitimate norms between major countries, such as the United States, China, Japan, and the ASEAN states, and its effects on the emerging rules in regional political and security affairs.
