This project aims to sketch world's views on the alliance with the U.S. and its roles in shaping regional and global order, through a series of dialogues with experts on international relations and foreign policy from those American allied or partnered countries. The project outcome will be shared by publishing a series of working papers on the website as well as by an edited volume from a prestigious publisher.
The Asia Strategy Initiative (ASI) aims to bring together mid-career experts to put forward a set of detailed issue-specific policy proposals on topics related to the U.S.-Japan alliance. After an initial pilot meeting held in January 2017, the group plans to meet twice each year (once in Tokyo, once in Washington DC) and will issue a memorandum after each meeting. The project will rely on recognized mid-career experts to delve deeply into policy options for Japan, the United States, and key partners, resulting in specific and actionable recommendations.
