Welcome to the ICAS. We provide lectures, seminars and discussions of issues related to Japanese politics, society and economics. Participants include a wide range of individuals from both the foreign and Japanese business, government and academic communities. We also publish articles on Asian and US affairs, host adjunct and visiting fellows, and coordinate undergraduate and graduate student internships. Our events and publications are in English.

Should you have any questions, please contact either Robert Dujarric, ICAS Director, or Eriko Kawaguchi, Coordinator, at icas@tuj.temple.edu.
