Open for submissions!
To apply, please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words describing the U.S. and/or Japanese perspective on the Alliance over the past 60 years. You can offer a broad assessment of the topic (including emerging challenges in U.S.-Japan relations and policy recommendations), or focus on a specific facet of the relationship (e.g., maritime security, cyber security, capacity-building for Southeast Asia, space collaboration, COVID19 and public health cooperation, strengthening alliance mechanisms addressing regional security challenges, improving people-to-people ties, and among others ).
Note: We seek high-caliber research papers (with clearly identifiable dependent and independent variables) between 4,000 and 7,000 words. Policy recommendations should be based on solid original analysis and data.
