[ALFP] Launching of the ALFP e-magazine: Voices of Asia

The Asia Leadership Fellow Program (ALFP), co-organized by the International House of Japan and the Japan Foundation, has launched an online magazine called Voices of Asia. Through this magazine, we hope to disseminate the thought of public intellectuals, mainly the ALFP fellows, working in civil society, as well as information directly from experts in their fields, including on the grassroots realities of Asia which the mainstream media do not always cover. Each issue will center on a theme pertinent to Asia and/or the world. The theme of the first issue is “democracy,” and the authors below share their thought and accounts on this theme with their own fresh perspectives.
