The Project on Japan-U.S. Relations serves as a link between the Yale University community and organizations concerned with ties between Japan and the U.S. The Project works to bring speakers from the academic, policy, and business worlds to Yale, where they can interact with faculty and students. The Project also serves as a Yale point-of-contact for outside groups connected with Japan and as a clearinghouse of Japan and Japan-U.S. related information for the University community. In addition to maintaining the web site http://www.yale.edu/japanus, the Project helps interested students search for internship and other opportunities connected to Japan-U.S. relations, hosts talks and conferences on issues pertinent to the U.S.-Japan relationship, and helps extend Yale’s presence in Japan. The Project is affiliated with the Council on East Asian Studies at Yale University and Michael R. Auslin (Assistant Professor of History) serves as Director of the Project on Japan-U.S. Relations.
