Yearbooks

The Reischauer Center annually coordinates and supports the publication of a yearbook focusing on U.S.-Japan relations. The focus of the book is on the past year’s developments in U.S.-Japan economic, security, financial, and cultural relations. The book is circulated, in both English and Japanese, throughout the world, as it has been for over 25 years. This is the longest continuously published survey of U.S.-Japan relations available anywhere in the world. Both authors and editors are graduate students at SAIS, primarily in the Japan Studies Program working in cooperation with knowledgeable bilingual faculty. The students research and interview experts in the field of U.S.-Japan relations, after completing a rigorous academic introduction to their subject. After a rigorous review process, the papers eventually become individual chapters of the yearbook. In addition to receiving academic credit for their contribution to the publication, the goal of the students is to help bring increased mutual understanding to contemporary U.S.-Japan relations, and to provide a framework for the maintenance of a constructive U.S.-Japan relationship.

Publications

Edwin O. Reischauer was both a pioneering scholar—in continental Asian as well as Japan Studies—and one of the first prominent academic specialists on East Asia to write for a general audience as well. Following in his tradition, the Reischauer Center publishes across a broad range of Asia-related topics, addressing both specialist and popular audiences. It supports the publication of articles, monographs, and books as well, through its Asia-Pacific Leadership Paper Series, Asia-Pacific Policy Paper Series and its US-Japan Yearbook Series.

Research

The Reischauer Center for East Asian Studies conducts research on a range of topics impacting the future direction of U.S.-Japan bilateral relations by focusing on the status quo and the lack of various essential policy dialogues between the two countries. The Center actively advocates and contributes to solutions for both private and public issues via our activities.

Reischauer Policy Research Fellows Program

This key program of the Reischauer Center, inaugurated in May, 2013, is designed to support the Center’s research program, while also providing recent university graduates with broad practical experience regarding the public and private-sector policy analysis process in Washington, DC. Fellows receive an annual stipend, and applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Fellowships are tenable for one full calendar year, beginning June 1, 2016, and potentially renewable for an additional year. To apply, please prepare a cover letter, CV, and 1,000 – 2,000 word writing sample (pieces previously written for academic classes are acceptable). Applications should be addressed to The Director, Reischauer Center for East Asian Studies, and sent electronically to: reischauer@jhu.edu.

Reischauer Policy Research Fellows assist the Director of the Reischauer Center personally with their assessments on priority analytical projects of the Center, with particular emphasis on the functioning of Washington’s “idea industry”; US-Japan relations; the role of cities in global governance; comparative Eurasian political economy; East Asian regionalism; energy policy; and comparative public-health issues.

Fellows also assist in organizing a rigorous and substantive seminar series for the Reischauer Center, focusing on finding best-practice solutions, through comparative public-policy analysis, for emerging energy and health-care issues. They also assist in developing a web-based system for diffusing ideas generated by the Reischauer Center on a global basis, and perform other research and policy analytical tasks as appropriate.

Visiting Scholars Program

The Reischauer Center hosts a total of up to fifteen scholars, senior journalists, and policy practitioners annually from the major nations of the North Pacific, in Washington D.C. Visiting scholars spend from several months to a year at the Reischauer Center conducting independent research, working with individual faculty, and participating in ongoing Reischauer Center activities – such as the Northeast Asia Political Economy Seminar and the US-Japan Policy Dialogue. They also lecture on occasion and make submissions to the Asia-Pacific Policy Papers series.
