Global Issues

While a wave of globalization has made the world more dynamic and wealthier, it has entailed risks such as those seen in the ongoing financial crisis. It is also important to keep our eye on the dynamics of this globalized world, where the relative weight of the emerging powers is increasing even as global governance may be on the decline. We provide useful information and discussions on the world economy and global issues.

Research Projects

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.
