Connecting People & Ideas to Advance Mutual Interests in U.S.- Asia Relations

The Mansfield Foundation this week released two new publications authored by the twelve scholars who make up Cohort IV of the U.S.-Japan Network for the Future program. These twelve Japan specialists — working at universities throughout the United States as well as in the U.S. government and the strategic communications field — are engaged in issues where it is increasingly important for the United States and Japan to cooperate, including security, state-building, and international migration. The policy papers the Cohort IV scholars contributed to Expert Voices on Japan: Security, Economic, Social and Foreign Policy Recommendations address these issues as well as debates and developments in areas with the potential to impact bilateral cooperation — domestic politics, global financial markets, trade and automation. In Policy Guidance from the U.S.-Japan Network for the Future Cohort IV, the scholars honed their research and analysis into op-eds that outline their recommendations for addressing these important issues.

The U.S.-Japan Network for the Future was initiated in 2009 to identify and support American professionals who demonstrate an interest in and potential for becoming Japan specialists and policy experts. The program currently encompasses fifty-four exceptional academics and practitioners in U.S. relations with Asia.
