The Japan Institute of International Affairs (abbreviated as JIIA, Japanese: 日本国際問題研究所 nihon kokusai mondai kenkyūshi) is a foreign policy and security think-tank in Japan. It was established in December 1959. It was modelled on the Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House) and other institutions. Japan's Prime Minister Shigeru Yoshida was the first chair of JIIA. Its current acting chairman is Shigemitsu Miki.[1]

According to both Foreign Affairs magazine and the Think Tanks & Civil Societies Program at the Lauder Institute of the University of Pennsylvania, JIIA is Japan's top think tank, and ranked number 2 in the ranking of Top Think Tanks in China, India, Japan, and the Republic of Korea.[2][3]

JIAA is a private, nonpartisan policy think-tank that examines Japan's foreign policies and makes proposals to the Japanese government. It has published over a hundred books. It also publishes Kokusai Mondai, a monthly Japanese language magazine on foreign affairs.[4]

JIAA regularly organizes forums, symposiums and international conferences where Japanese and international experts discuss and debate Japan's foreign policy and world affairs.[5]

JIAA also conducts research projects on foreign policy issues related to the Asia Pacific region, Northeast Asia, Americas, Europe, Russia & CIS, Middle East & Africa, Security and Globalization.[4]
