In partnership with the SSRC, the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (CGP) established the Abe Fellowship Program as its flagship program in 1991, twenty-five years ago. Since then, the program has firmly established itself as a critical hub for researchers engaged in US-Japan dialogue and cooperation and continues to facilitate valuable policy-relevant research on pivotal issues facing Japan and the United States. In this video, partners, fellows, and committee members discuss the history of the program and its importance to the future of scholarship and US-Japan relations.
