Since its establishment, the Sasakawa Peace Foundation (SPF) has implemented and supported projects that contribute to global peace and security. The International Peace and Security Department carries out projects that strengthen peace and stability in Japan, the Asia-Pacific region, and the rest of the world. More specifically, the department conducts research, disseminates information, and provides policy recommendations concerning Japan’s defense issues; the Japan–U.S. alliance, which has been a key contributor to the stability of Japan and the Asian region; regional issues in Asia; and challenges for world stability. Through these activities, the department also plays a part in private-sector defense diplomacy (Track II diplomacy).
