Hitotsubashi Institute for Advanced Study

Hitotsubashi University, as a research university in the social sciences, has long been a leader in various social science fields in Japan. Today, while academic research activities are globally extending rapidly, people in the society strongly expect universities to contribute toward solving major social problems in the world. In order to respond to these requests from the society by advancing the higher level of international joint research, we established the Hitotsubashi Institute for Advanced Study (HIAS) in 2014 as a research organization directly under the President, aiming for the world’s cutting-edge of social sciences research.[:]

Research Centers

HIAS operates two affiliated facilities:
the Research Center for Global Economic Systems;
and
the Research Center for Health Policy and Economics

In spring of 2018, the Research Center for Global Economic Systems (RC4GLECS) was newly established under the HIAS. The RC4GLECS will take over the interdisciplinary research which the HIAS has been focusing on since its establishment.
There are four research areas: globalization and economic policies; institutions and policies for sustainable poverty reduction in developing countries; development of macroeconometric models with applications to macroeconomic problems; and norms, institutions, and mechanism design.

Hitotsubashi University established its Research Center for Health Policy and Economics in 2015 to advance research in health economics.
The Center aims to conduct policy advocacy and social outreach on the basis of advanced research and analysis, to develop human resources with a good understanding of medical settings and a well-rounded specialized education in social science, and to form research and education networks with other universities, research institutes and medical institutions through these activities.
