Abe Fellowship Program 20th Anniversary Symposium
"Possible Futures for Japan"
The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (CGP) and the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) will jointly host a public symposium entitled, Possible Futures for Japan, in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Abe Fellowship Program.
The Abe Fellowship Program was established in 1991 in order to encourage international multidisciplinary research on topics of pressing global concern and to foster the network of a new generation of researchers interested in policy-relevant topics of long-range importance.
At this symposium leading scholars - including former and current Abe Fellows - will discuss the future role that Japan can take in the international society, in a wide range of policy areas such as disaster management, nuclear policies, security policies, and aging population in the near future.
