The Program on U.S.-Japan Relations provides staff support for JPOSS. It is a virtual forum to present and discuss research-in-progress on questions related to Japanese politics, broadly defined. We intend to build a community of students and scholars who seek to foster collaboration and scholarship on Japanese politics. JPOSS is led by Amy Catalinac (NYU), Charles Crabtree (Dartmouth), Christina Davis (Harvard), Yusaku Horiuchi (Dartmouth), Phillip Lipscy (University of Toronto), Frances McCall Rosenbluth (Yale), and Dan Smith (Harvard). For more information, please contact Shinju Fujihira sfujihira (at) wcfia.harvard.edu, the Program’s Executive Director.
