“Japan Moves Forward”
January 18, 2012
The Maureen and Mike Mansfield Foundation and the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership are pleased to announce the publication of “Japan Moves Forward: Views from the U.S.-Japan Network for the Future,” now available here. This publication compiles policy papers from each of the fifteen participants in the inaugural group of the U.S.-Japan Network for the Future.
The U.S.-Japan Network for the Future was launched in 2009 to identify and support American professionals who demonstrate an interest in and potential for becoming Japan specialists and policy intellectuals. The policy papers included in “Japan Moves Forward: Views from the U.S.-Japan Network for the Future” present the perspectives of the first group of Network participants on a wide range of issues related to their research and relevant to the U.S.-Japan relationship moving forward. The topics range from policy recommendations for U.S.-Japan relations to Japan’s politics and policies on energy, immigration, homelessness and trade. The foreword is written by Dr. Susan Pharr, who is a member of the Advisory Committee for the Network.
