For the past six years the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs has sponsored a study trip to Japan during Spring Break. The trip is organized by graduate students from Japan pursuing a Master of Public Policy (MPP) degree. These students are young professionals working at various Japanese Government Ministries and are on leave to pursue graduate study overseas.
The Japan Trip 2018 is generously funded in part by the Terasaki Foundation and co-sponsored by the Luskin School of Public Affairs and the Terasaki Center for Japanese Studies. Each trip focuses on different public policy issues. In previous trip students examined policies in Japan related to transportation, sustainable development, energy, education funding, emergency management, disaster relief etc. Last year, about 40 Luskin students participated in the trip.
