The U.S.-Japan Institute accepts contracts for research on topics relating to U.S.-Japan relations.  The length and depth of the research will vary depending on the client's needs.  Generally, requests fall into one of the following categories:

  •  Specific pieces of information, such as congressional committee hearing transcripts, company press releases, or news articles (if necessary, we can find these documents based on vague or incomplete source information)

  • All relevant information pertaining to specific topics (example: class action suits involving Japanese automobile manufacturers during the 1980s)

  • Information requiring interviews of company officers, public figures or other individuals

  • Long-term commissioned research in which we collect, analyze, organize and assess information on a given subject

The U.S.-Japan Institute will not accept contracts to collect confidential or proprietary information.
