Japan Economy Network
The Japan Economy Network (JEN) was established in July 2015 to promote research on the Japanese economy in comparative perspective and facilitate exchange between researchers with an active research interest in the Japanese Economy. The JEN is an informal network open to researchers from academia, think tanks, international organisations, central banks, governments, NGOs and the private sector. JEN is hosted by SOAS, University of London.
