Global Asia Research Center for reconciliation and sustainable development

The Top Global University Project aims to enhance the international competitiveness of higher education in Japan. At the beginning of this academic year, Waseda University launched the Global Asia Research Center, the newest addition to the existing six education and research model units which receive priority funding from the Project.

This Center brings together scholars from Waseda and in and outside of the Asian region to globally disseminate important scholarly research. Moreover, it also undertakes the development of academia to lead conflict resolution of various problems in Asia, as well as the development of Asia leaders who will contribute to addressing such problems.
