Promoting close cooperation and open discussion among diverse experts from Japan and the United States is of increasing signifi cance to ensure regional peace and stability. Especially as international relationships continue to evolve—including notable political turbulence in the United States—it becomes even more important to deepen mutual understanding and foster cooperative ties between these two countries. Our program aims to build and strengthen, within the nonprofi t sector, a platform of experts and a strong knowledge base to help Japan and the U.S. pursue opportunities for cooperation and tackle global challenges from a medium- to long-term perspective.
We believe that strong Japan–U.S. relations and cooperation can greatly contribute to regional stability and prosperity. To this end, the Japan–U.S. program implements a wide range of projects.
Recognizing the importance of contributing to policy-making and formation of public opinions from an independent perspective, it seeks to build multi-faceted, tight interpersonal networks through strategic peopleto-people exchange, promoting policy research and joint studies (primarily on diplomatic and security issues), encouraging and involving next-generation experts in both countries, and enhancing the dissemination of information.
