Enjoying a strong track record for attracting competitive research funds, including the government-sponsored Century of Excellence (COE) or “Strategic Research Foundation Grant-aided Project for Private Universities” grants, the Center for Interdisciplinary Study of Monotheistic Religions, Doshisha University, has established itself as a unique research hub with a focus on themes linking US global strategy and monotheistic religions over the past decade. Built on the research outcomes at the Center, this new project aims to explore the significant roles played by religious and social factors in the development of US–Japan relations.
