Organizational Status: Independent NGO, founded in 1970.

General Description: JCIE is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to strengthening Japan's role in international affairs. It believes that Japan faces a major challenge in augmenting its positive contributions to the international community in keeping with its position as one of the world's largest industrial democracies. Operating in a country where policy making has traditionally been dominated by the government bureaucracy, the center has played an important role in broadening debate on Japan's international responsibilities by conducting international and cross-sectoral programs of exchange, research and discussion. JCIE creates opportunities for informed policy discussions; it does not take policy positions. Its programs are carried out with the collaboration and co-sponsorship of many organizations. The contacts developed through these working relationships are crucial to the center's efforts to increase the number of Japanese from the private sector engaged in meaningful policy research and dialogue with overseas counterparts.
