Shared Values and Democracy in Asia - international Symposium


The International Symposium "Shared Values and Democracy in Asia" takes place in Tokyo on 5 July. The Japan Foundation Asia Center facilitates many dialogues between intellectuals and researchers with the aim of achieving mutual cultural understanding and building a strong foundation for the future.

This symposium is being held as the fourth symposium of a pair of Japan-India conferences.

This year, we invite political leaders, religious leaders, and researchers from Asian countries to examine which values, if any, are commonly shared by Asian people and how they have sustained the evolution of those countries into modern democracies.

Speakers are coming from Japan, Philippines, India, Indonesia, Korea, China, Thailand and Malaysia, among other Asian countries.

A special session is held on Achievements and Challenges of the Cultural Exchange between Japan and Asia toward Future Collaboration
