China-Japan-U.S. Research and Dialogue Project
Since the end of the cold war, there has been a growing awareness that the security and prosperity of Asia Pacific will be largely contingent upon enhanced cooperation among the region's three dominant economies—China, Japan, and the United States. Based on that premise, JCIE launched a long-term policy research and dialogue project in December 1996 to explore the issues and challenges that lie ahead. Collaborating organizations on this initiative included the Institute of American Studies of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, the China Reform Forum, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and the United States Institute of Peace. The project took a two-pronged approach, combining workshops that involved senior scholars and experts with study groups of emerging intellectual leaders from the three countries.
The project began with an initial workshop in Beijing in December 1996, followed by workshops in June 1997 in Tokyo, in July 1998 in Washington, D.C., in October 1999 in Kisarazu, and in October 2000 in Yokohama. The resulting publications are listed below.
