[ALFP] Public Seminars


Six fellows who have sojourned in Japan since September for the Asia Leadership Fellow Program (ALFP) will speak at the three public seminars to be held at universities in Tokyo. During their one-and-a-half-month stay in Japan, the fellows have engaged in dialogues concerning the challenges faced by Asia and the world among themselves, as well as with their counterparts in Japan, beyond their own fields. In these public seminars, the fellows will share their thoughts on the current situation of their countries and the issues they have been working on, along with the learnings from their exchanged dialogues.
*Admission: all the seminars are free and reservations are not required.
