■Research theme, outline of project research seminar, message to prospects:
 This research project will focus on the activities of one INGO in the Asia-Pacific Region, the Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR: 1925-1961), which was especially active before and during the Pacific War as a founder of Asia-Pacific Studies. The research activities of the International Secretariat of IPR and its national branches (Japan, China, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Korea, the Philippines, the Netherlands, France, USSR) will be examined in relation to the international situation at that time, In addition, the thoughts of key individuals who were involved in the IPR movement will be examined.
The historical analysis will help students learn to write academic papers and Master theses and to grasp contemporary international issues and disputes from an historical view point.
By using historical documents and current academic articles and books, students are expected to contribute to contemporary society as young academicians to help solve a variety of social and international problems.
