His recent authored and co-authored publications include “Exit, Voice and Loyalty in Asia: Individual Choice under 32 Asian Societal Umbrellas,” “Trust with Asian Characteristics: Interpersonal and Institutional,” “The Development of Global Legislative Politics: Rousseau and Locke Writ Global” (2019), “Digitized Statecraft in Multilateral Treaty Participation: Global Quasi-Legislative Behavior of 193 Sovereign States” (forthcoming in 2021) and contributed an essay to “The Oxford Encyclopedia of Empirical International Relations Theory, Vol. 4.” Currently, Dr. Inoguchi finds success as the editor-in-chief of the Asian Journal of Comparative Politics, as the editor of The SAGE Handbook of Asian Foreign Policy, 2 vols., (2019), and as an eminent scholar-professor of political science at the Institute of Asian Cultures at J.
