June 6, 2019-June 7, 2019
University of Oslo, Blindern, Oslo

The 21st Century is Asia's Century. At ASIANET 2019 we focus on four domains where the rise of Asia is already palpable: economy, politics, environment and culture.

University of Bergen.

'When China Faces the World: Engagement or Disengagement? Marking the Centenary Anniversary of the May 4th Movement.' Modernization is a painful process for any nation with a great tradition.

DIIS ∙ Danish Institute for International Studies Auditorium, Gl. Kalkbrænderi Vej 51A
Copenhagen, 2100 Denmark
+ Google Map
