Meiji Institute for Global Affairs (MIGA)

Project Summary


The Organization for the Strategic Coordination of Research and Intellectual Properties (hereinafter referred as ‘the Organization.’ ) promotes internationalization of researches at Meiji University in coordination with the Organization for International Collaboration established in 2009. In order to become one of the world class universities, Meiji University needs a research base where researches which have global implications are conducted. We established MIGA as such research base under the Organization.

MIGA’ s researches have two axis based on which various researches will develop. One is to identify Japan’s role for the world’s development and also to consider how to actualize it. In doing so, we need to have a broad perspective to understand various changes, geopolitical, economical or technological, in the world. The second axis is to identify various issues which are shared globally and consider the ways to overcome them. Current research projects are listed below.

Through the abovementioned research studies, we aim to develop policy proposals, publicize academic papers and establish global intellectual network through cooperation with foreign researchers. In order for Japan to remain as a viable and respectable player intellectually and economically in the world, MIGA intends to serve as a basis for facilitating global intellectual interaction.

Director's Message

MIGA Director Ryozo Hayashi

The Meiji Institute for Global Affairs (MIGA) was established by Meiji University in 2011 with a mission to make intellectual contribution to the global community, through redefining of Japan’s role on the international stage.

MIGA focuses on two major research fields. One relates to regional studies and international relations, i.e., U.S.-China Relations, Middle East Situation and Economic Integration in East Asia, which all play important roles for national security and sustainable development in Asia. Another focuses on cross-border challenges, i.e., Corporate Governance, Healthcare Policy and Vulnerability of the Information Network.

Through the above-mentioned research studies, we aim to develop policy proposals, publicize academic papers and establish global intellectual network through collaboration with international research institute. One of our top priorities is to integrate knowledge not only from academics, but also from business leaders and policy-makers.

In this context, MIGA annual symposium 2013 held on February 25th was a successful event. I believe it showed the ways in which our research is making significant contributions in tackling the global challenges.

In April 2013, we moved to a new office located on the 16th floor of the Global Front building on Meiji University, Surugadai campus - an ideal setting to bring together comprehensive knowledge from the government, industry and academia in proposing innovative solutions to the challenges of the 21st century. To broaden a wide range of expertise from all over the world, we would greatly appreciate your intellectual support and cooperation.
