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.

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.
