HistoryEdit

The Reischauer Center was established as the Japan Institute in 1984 in honor of the first Japanese-born and Japanese-speaking U.S. Ambassador to Japan, Edwin Reischauer.

From 1984 through 1990, Ambassador Reischauer was the Honorary Chair of the Edwin O. Reischauer Center for East Asian Studies at SAIS. After his death in 1990, his widow Haru Reischauer accepted the same role, and this continued until her death in 1998.[1] In 2003, Professor Kent E. Calder joined SAIS and became Director of the Reischauer Center.

Research areasEdit

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. Topics include a U.S.-Japan Policy Dialogue, the United States and Japan in Trilateral Contexts, A Changing Washington, Northeast Asian Political Economy, and Asia-Middle East Relationships. The Reischauer Center also hosts visiting scholars from the major nations of the North Pacific to conduct research, deliver lectures, and make submissions to the Asia-Pacific Policy Papers series. In 2013, the Center instituted the Reischauer Policy Research Fellows Program for recent university graduates.

Selected worksEdit

The Center's published works encompass 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.
