IIPS was founded by former Japanese Prime Minister Yasuhiro Nakasone for research and study, international exchange, and other activities conducive to examining critical issues facing the world and Japan. IIPS pursues a research program that covers international politics, economics, security, energy, and the environment. Research staff, mostly seconded from various Japanese government ministries and businesses for a period of two years, conduct research activities and present policy proposals that address present and future global trends. Visiting research fellows from the United States, Europe, and Asia pursue their own research projects for varying lengths of time and participate in IIPS activities. IIPS holds regular seminars and symposia in Tokyo on important political and economic issues, inviting noted scholars and distinguished speakers from throughout the world. In addition, IIPS conducts a number of joint projects with other research organizations.
