Japan Program

Reducing misunderstanding, improving communication, and advancing cooperation between the U.S. and Japan.

Despite the the strength of the US-Japan alliance, there is a lack of understanding of Japan’s policies, institutions, and policymaking process. As a result, tensions have risen from misguided expectations and misunderstandings and impacted many parts of the alliance and its supporting industries.

The Stimson Center’s Japan program aims to reduce that misunderstanding among the U.S. policy-making community to help sustain a robust U.S.-Japan alliance that can adapt as new challenges arise.

The program focuses on expanding working-level interactions between the U.S. and Japanese defense establishments by providing key analysis to policymakers and working with experts in the military and the policy community to understand the challenges of the alliance in a historical and contemporary context.
