More than twenty years have passed since the end of the Cold War, but the world still faces numerous security challenges. While the strategic environment of the region surrounding Japan may be characterized by traditional security challenges posed by sovereign states, the world has witnessed the rising influence of non-state actors posing non-traditional security challenges. JIIA conducts various research projects to analyse the nature of these security challenges and to present policy recommendations.
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.
