    Research Overview

    Our research focuses on modern Japan in a global context. The portfolio of projects reflects the disciplinary background and interests of our senior researchers and changes together with the composition of our team.

    The overarching goal is to explore how Japan copes with the risks and challenges in an increasingly uncertain world. We presently pursue this goal through the three research clusters studying Sustainability and Resilience, the Digital Transformation, and Japan in Transregional Perspective. They are complemented by a Knowledge Lab, which promotes the exchange on our transdisciplinary and comparative research approaches with a focus on knowledge production and knowledge infrastructures. 

    The DIJ collaborates with research institutes and scholars throughout the world, including through a long-term research cooperation on 'Asian Infrastructures' with the National Universty of Singapore.
