About the Japan Studies Program
The Japan studies program at CFR aims to meet the demand for greater policy analysis and dialogue between the United States and Japan at a time of considerable global transformations. At both the regional and global levels, the United States and Japan have a common stake in managing successfully new economic and security challenges. Moreover, at a time of significant domestic transitions in our societies, the ability for the two countries to work together to find opportunities for effective and timely policy coordination is more important than ever. Under the direction of Sheila A. Smith, the Japan studies program regularly organizes small and large high-level meetings with leading experts on Japan’s foreign policy and domestic issues.
CFR's Japan programming is made possible in part by the generosity of the following corporate sponsors: Mitsui & Co. (U.S.A.), Inc., Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America, Mitsubishi International Corporation, Sony Corporation of America, Toyota Motor North America, and the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ.
