Student participation in Policing, Public Space, and Democracy project in Tokyo

Friday, Jan 17, 2020


As part of the Tokyo-Princeton Strategic Partnership project, “Policing, Public Space, and Democracy,” the Center on Transnational Policing (CTP) will provide an opportunity for two Princeton University students to travel to Tokyo during the Olympics in summer of 2020.

Through collaboration, project members from Princeton University and the University of Tokyo will analyze policing as a component of democracy in both Japan and the United States in order to contemplate new approaches to public security, safety and crime prevention that minimize the use of force in everyday life.

Over the course of two weeks during summer (specific dates to be determined later through consultation), selected students will have opportunities to accompany faculty members as they engage in field observations and scholarly exchange. Students may also utilize the opportunity for carrying out their own research projects.

CTP will offer support for selected students’ airfare and accommodation and modest stipends during their stay in Tokyo.

Interested students should submit the following materials to the CTP Project Manager (Michiko Tsuneda, mtsuneda@princeton.edu) by February 15, 2020:

  • One-page cover letter outlining qualification and interest
  • Resume
  • One recommendation letter

Questions can be directed to the CTP Project Manager.
