The Reischauer Center for East Asian Studies was established at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in 1984 with the explicit support of the Reischauer family. Its mission is to support research on trans-Pacific and inter-Asian relations while promoting mutual understanding between Northeast Asia, particularly Japan, and the United States.

Reischauer Center’s yearbook on U.S.-Japan relations is believed to be one of the longest, continuously-published surveys on bilateral relations between the two countries. The goal of the yearbook is to reflect on recent events in the United States or Japan that have directly or indirectly had an effect on not only bilateral relations, but also the alliance’s changing impact on both regional and global affairs.
