In this project, up and coming young Japanese researchers forecast the international situation over the next twenty years and analyzed U.S. Asia policy together with American experts. The young researchers and U.S. experts carried out collaborative research with a view to crafting proposals for guidelines on Japanese national security policy. The project examined Japan's foreign relations, examining a geographical area not confined to the Asia-Pacific region but the entire region between the West Pacific and Indian Ocean - a new 'Strategic Horizon'.
