We aim to identify and promote strong conservatives whose message applies anywhere in the world.
Postwar Japan has suffered from left-leaning dialogue and policies. People hesitated to discuss our national values and even our national interests.
However, with the passing of the 70th anniversary of the war, it is the time for us to evaluate our national security policies, established in the 1940s through Japan's constitution, and look to a conservative new approach that will benefit Japan and its neighbors.
In the current era, where the world is increasingly interconnected, Japan needs dynamic conservatives to share their firm view for rebuilding our country while keeping their eyes open to the world around us.
JCU will consult with conservatives around the world to identify common messages for this new era.
Our vision is to bring a common voice, both from within Japan and in other countries, to the great policy debates of the current era and help talents of the next generation develop their potential to make contributions to safe and economically stable world.
