The assassination of former Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe on 8th July shocked the world, with tributes pouring in from all over the globe.

Abe, Japan’s longest-serving prime minister until he stepped down in 2020, was arguably one of the country’s most consequential leaders. He oversaw a programme of economic reform at home, which came to be known as Abenomics, as well as a reorientation of Japan’s approach to foreign policy and national security.

In this episode of the Centre for Security, Diplomacy and Strategy's Asia Matters podcast, USSC chief executive Mike Green and senior Japan fellow at the Centre for Security, Diplomacy and Strategy Eva Pejsova look at Abe's legacy, particularly when it comes to international affairs.
