The National Security Archive US-Japan Special Documentation Project is
an international cooperative project, involving leading American and Japanese
scholars, on relations between the United States and Japan over the past
three decades, focusing on strategic, political and economic relations.
Key components of the Project include:
Securing declassification of key U.S. government records
pertaining to U.S.-Japanese relations to serve as the basis of a comprehensive
edited collection of key declassified documents detailing the making of
U.S. policy towards Japan since 1960.
Coordination and support for teams of U.S. and Japanese
that are preparing new studies, based upon the declassified documents,
that analyze the linkages between security and economics in U.S.-Japanese
relations in the postwar era.
Coordination and support for an oral history program with
leading former U.S. and Japanese officials
Sponsorship of major
conferences and other events
to bring together the Project Research
Fellows, other American and Japanese scholars, and former officials from
both nations to discuss the new analyses of key policy issues and events
prepared by the Research Fellows.
