U.S.-Japan Peacebuilding Cooperation:
Roles and Recommendations toward a Whole-of-Alliance Approach

As allies and leaders in the international community, Japan and the United States bear special responsibility in helping to provide for peace and stability in post-conflict states around the world. Yet both allies have seldom coordinated their peacebuilding efforts in a sustained manner in order to maximize their resources and activities in the field. Instead, bilateral peacebuilding cooperation remains a largely ad hoc endeavor, with little thought given to lessons learned, comparative advantages of each ally in overseas missions, or joint planning over the mid to long term. U.S.-Japan Peacebuilding Cooperation: Roles and Recommendations toward a Whole-of-Alliance Approach is a compendium of workshop papers written by U.S., Japanese, and other experts and provides a comprehensive examination of how bilateral peacebuilding cooperation can be enhanced, both in the context of bilateral whole-of-alliance cooperation and as an effective mechanism for international peacebuilding operations. With case studies of peacebuilding operations in Sudan and Afghanistan, this report seeks to illuminate the obstacles and opportunities of U.S.-Japan peacebuilding cooperation in real-world scenarios. A list of policy recommendations at the end of the report provides further points of consideration for both policy makers and students of U.S.-Japan alliance relations and international peacebuilding alike.
