Research is focused primarily on international security, the global environment, and international political economy. Research programs include the Northeast Asia-United States Forum on International Policy, the Center for International Security and Arms Control, the Americas Program, the Asia/Pacific Research Center, and the Stanford Japan Center-Research, located in Kyoto. The institute also oversees teaching programs and five area centers for African, East Asian, European, Latin American, and Russian and East European studies.
