The Division of Planning and Publication of the GS organizes seminars and joint researches; and supervises overseas dissemination of our outcomes. Our responsibilities include publication of articles, books and newsletters.
Our activities involve collaboration with several related institutions, such as the National Defense Medical College, the National Institute for Defense Studies, the Joint Staff College, JGSDF, JMSDF, and JASDF Staff Colleges as well as the JGSDF Ground Research and Development Command's Acquisition Technology and Logistics Agency. We also collaborate with a variety of other institutions including domestic and foreign government offices, universities, and research institutes.
We also organize and supervise various events in order to disseminate our research outcomes. These events include colloquiums (exchanges of opinions of experts), seminars (reports and discussions over a specific topic), and symposiums (keynote addresses by leading experts, presentations, panel discussions and plural sessions). The contents and outcomes of these events are made available from our website, aiming at promoting the National Defense Academy as the focus of national security studies.
