PUBLICATION

Research is one of the core activities of JIIA to provide useful policy ideas and analysis. JIIA conducts a wide range of research including international relations, economic issues and regional topics. The results of our research are widely disseminated to stimulate informed public debate. Our study groups/taskforces bring together distinguished scholars and practitioners for research projects. Along with these research findings, we offer periodic as well as occasional publications that include monthly journal Kokusai Mondai (International Affairs) and AJISS Commentary.
