Andrew L. Oros

Professor of Political Science and International Studies; Associate Dean for International Education 

Professor Oros is a specialist on the international and comparative politics of East Asia and the advanced industrial democracies, with an emphasis on contending approaches to managing security. He is author or co-author of three books on Japan’s evolving security policies, including Japan’s Security Renaissance (Columbia University Press, 2017), over a dozen scholarly articles and book chapters, and numerous short policy briefs. He speaks frequently about his research on issues in Japanese politics and East Asian security in the mass media, to fellow researchers, and to policymakers in Washington DC, Tokyo, and world-wide.

Professor Oros’s latest book, Japan’s Security Renaissance, was published in February 2017 — click here for a flyer with discount code, here for a podcast interview about the book (20 minutes), and here for an updated table on election results for the past four upper house elections (2007-16, Appendix Two).
