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.
