Re-examining the Importance of the U.S.-Japan Relationship in an Era of Change

This Mansfield Foundation book summarizes discussions held as part of a two-day program to reassess the U.S.-Japan relationship in light of domestic political changes, regional tensions and other developments.  Program participants included members of two Mansfield Foundation programs – the Mike Mansfield Fellowships and the U.S.-Japan Network for the Future – as well as Japanese discussants from academic institutions, government agencies and think tanks in the U.S. and Japan.  Ambassador Rust Deming, adjunct professor for the Japan Studies Program at Johns Hopkins University and now head of the Office of Japan Affairs at the U.S. Department of State, led both days of the program, which included a closed-door working session at the Foundation’s Washington, D.C., office February 28, 2011 and a public event on Capitol Hill March 1.  During the two-day event, the nine East Asia specialists and Ambassador Rust Deming discussed regional security issues, the aftermath of the global financial crisis, and new factors affecting climate change and energy policies in the U.S. and Japan.   This publication presents on overview of those discussions as well as follow-up discussions in which participants were asked to assess the implications of the Great East Japan Earthquake for the relationship.  In addition to Ambassador Deming, program participants included:

  • Kiyoaki Aburaki, Keidanren (Japan Business Federation)

  • Kuniko Ashizawa, Oxford Brooks University

  • Toshi Arimura, Sophia University

  • L. William Heinrich, U.S. Department of State and Mansfield Fellow 2005-2007

Paved With Good Intentions: The NGO Experience in North Korea (2003) reports the findings of a research study that examined the impact of NGO and U.N. humanitarian relief efforts in North Korea after 1995. Through this study of relief activities, the authors (Scott Snyder, L. Gordon Flake, Chung Oknim and Michael Schloms) shed light on what is arguably the world’s most inaccessible and closed nation. The research study was supported by a grant from the Smith Richardson Foundation. (Contact info@mansfieldfdn.org for purchase information.)
