On Nov. 16, "Japan Matters for America / America Matters for Japan"
Understanding the U.S.-Japan Relationship from Regional View and Citizens’ View
(November 16,2015)

Closed.

On November 16, the Sasakawa Peace Foundation will host a seminar on the U.S.-Japan relationship, inviting Dr. Satu P. Limaye, Director of the East-West Center in Washington and Mr. Bruce Stokes, Director at Global Economic Attitudes of the Pew Research Center.

In this November, Sasakawa Peace Foundation and the East-West Center co-publish the new version of the English/Japanese bilingual booklet “Japan Matters for America/America Matters for Japan” that illustrates regional-level connection and interdependence between the two countries such as state, prefecture, city, and congressional district. The United States is a highly-diverse country and its regional features very much signify for multiple issues including the coming presidential election next year. In this context, congressmen/women in Washington D.C. pay a great deal of attention to the research of the booklet as it well explains how U.S.-Japan relations matter for their own electoral district.

In spring of 2015, the Pew Research Center, in association with Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA, surveyed publics both in the U.S. and Japan to examine what the people of each nation think about each other, the ties between them, and the challenges they face.

We hope our seminar would help you to appreciate how the two countries have nurtured deep and multi-layered relationship for years based on our latest researches. We welcome your active participation and insightful questions.
