Rich and varied research on Japanese studies in India, in particular the economic/trade relations between Japan and India in the era of globalization; is often been constrained by the lack of institutional and financial support. Therefore, it becomes important for autonomous, policy oriented research institutes in India to pursue advanced research on various aspects of Japanese studies. Keeping in view of this need for strengthening research on Japan in India, it was decided to launch the Project on Japanese Studies at ICRIER in 2007, with financial support from Sasakawa Peace Foundation, Japan; to carry out research on economic/trade engagements between two most flourishing democracies and top economies in Asia, besides covering other major strategic and bilateral issues between them.
ICRIER, being one of the leading and independent economic research organizations in India, based in Delhi has state-of-the art research facilities, highly qualified researchers and strong networks with international research institutes, academicians, policy makers and the corporate sector. It is hoped that the Project on Japanese studies at ICRIER by encompassing a wide range of research initiatives on India-Japan bilateral ties, will provide a strong fillip to research on Japan in India.
The ICRIER-SPF Japan Project is being looked after by
