USJP HEES Findings - Exchanges


Since the signing of the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan in 1951, U.S.-Japan bilateral relations have been enhanced by strong academic engagement, cooperation, and mutual goodwill. With the conviction that people exchanges are the most effective means to promote world peace, the governments of Japan and the United States included in the agreement the establishment of an educational exchange program between the two countries through the Fulbright program (Japan U.S. Education Commission 2021).

Both countries have come a long way in terms of the number and types of academic and cultural exchanges offered not only by their governments but also by their civil society through higher education institutions, non-governmental organizations, foundations, and other educational and cultural entities.
