Memory and Reconciliation in the Asia-Pacific (MRAP) is a research and policy program located in the Sigur Center for Asian Studies at the George Washington University in Washington D.C. The project was launched in the fall of 2003. Initial funding came from a United States Institute of Peace (USIP) grant and has been supplemented by GW and other sources.

At present the project consists primarily of a database of information located in this website. In addition, graduate and undergraduate level courses are being offered, such as a core graduate seminar on violence, history and memory in modern Asia. The project has organized symposia that deal with issues pertaining to the Tokyo War Crimes Trials and remaining historical issues in Asia. In the future, it will focus on commissioning essays and the creation of a Handbook of Historical Reconciliation in East Asia.
