Information

On February 12, 2019, JIIA began an institutional repository -- "Japan Institute of International Affairs (JIIA) Repository" -- upon receiving approval from the National Institute of Informatics (NII) as a research institution transmitting academic information. We plan to use this electronic library system to disseminate open access research results alongside other universities and research institutions. Researchers and students will be able to search the Repository with an academic paper search engine such as CiNii or Google Scholar.

JIIA again ranked 1st in Asia and 14th globally in "2017 Global Go To Think Tank Ranking"★
   ->2017 Global Go To Think Tank Index Report (TTCSP)
