Project Leader/Sub-Leader


ISHIKAWA Jota (Faculty Fellow)



Recently, the world economy has been globalized very rapidly. Globalization has benefited us a lot. On the other hand, globalization faces a number of problems. In this research project, we examine important economic-policy issues in the global economy. We explore these issues mainly from the theoretical perspective of international economics, deepen the understanding of globalization and economic policies, and obtain useful policy implications. In particular, we conduct research along the four pillars listed as challenges in the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF):

(1) Trade
(2) Supply Chains
(3) Clean Energy, Decarbonization, and Infrastructure
(4) Tax and Anti-Corruption
