Since its founding nearly 60 years ago, Hudson Institute has championed a strong Japan and the importance of the U.S.-Japan alliance. Hudson’s founder was among the first to predict the rise of Japan as a major world economy.Shinzo Abe In 2013, Prime Minister Shinz? Abe received Hudson’s Herman Kahn Award, in recognition of Japan’s crucial role in helping secure a free and prosperous future for democracies around the world.

Today more than ever, growing threats in Northeast Asia and the Indo-Pacific prove the need for an enduring Japan-U.S. alliance.

Hudson launched the Japan Chair in spring 2019 to address these challenges and opportunities. This major new initiative, led by Lieutenant General H.R. McMaster, will allow Hudson Institute to capitalize on Shinzo Abeits deep connections in Tokyo and Washington to expand economic ties, enhance defense cooperation, and promote closer scientific and technological collaboration between the United States and Japan.
