The World and Japan database project


“The substance of this project is the provision of accurate basic information on the world situation and Japanese politics and diplomacy in the modern age, extending to the present. The project was launched with a view to heightening the level of specialized research on and education in Japanese politics and diplomacy and the world situation. At the same time, we hope that by providing fundamental factual information about such matters as treaties, speeches and chronological data, we will help to enhance the quality of discussion of international issues in the policy-making arena, within government and in the mass media of each country, and in informal interfaces such as social network services.”
