The Asia-Pacific is a dynamic region that represents approximately fifty percent of global GDP and accounts for about forty percent of world trade. In the midst of the changing dynamics in the region's security architecture caused partly by the rise of China and India, international relations in the Asia-Pacific are characterized by both cooperation and competition. JIIA addresses economic, political, and security developments in the region and delves into Japan's role in the Asia-Pacific.
JIIA is engaged in a range of research on international and global issues. Our research emphasizes policy analysis and recommendation as well as the dissemination of information to stimulate informed public debate.
