Taking Stock and Looking Towards the Future of Contemporary Japanese Studies

15:30 to 17:00
Stockholm seminar on Japan

The Swedish Institute of International Affairs invites to the 100th Stockholm Seminar on Japan.

The 100th Stockholm Seminar on Japan marks the important contribution of this seminar in relation to the academic community, policy and private industry. The initiation of the seminar series was built on the need to establish a platform focusing on the contemporary study of Japan. In this joint endeavor a number of partners teamed up to facilitate a wide spectrum of contributions. Celebrating the 100th seminar clearly shows that the proposal was timely and had a long-term impact. During the Covid19 pandemic the seminar went online as a webinar, but continued to thrive and attract distinguished speakers as well as well-informed audience. With the increasingly complex global political and economic environment, the importance of this series seems to be vital. Japan and Sweden share the belief in the rules-based world order, where collaboration and trust are essential building blocks for the future.

The 100th Stockholm Seminar on Japan will be on site and back to its original form. However, to mark the occasion there will this time be a panel discussion focusing on areas covered in the series, but more importantly, to look towards the future of important areas for Japanese studies.

We are delighted to have a number of distinguished panelists to share their insights.

Moderator: Dr. Patrik Ström, Director, European Institute of Japanese Studies, Stockholm School of Economics
