Objective: Study social conflicts caused by global/local population dynamics in the 21st century and solve problems of culture clash and wellbeing in East Eurasia

The Kobe University Base of East Eurasian Studies Project(EES Kobe) was established as one of the four projects “Global Mediterranean Studies”, “Indian Ocean Rim Studies”, “Maritime Asia and Oceania Studies”, and “East Eurasia Studies”, which were planned as a network-type core research project “Promoting Area Studies” by the National Institutes for the Humanities.

The EES Kobe will conduct comprehensive and integrated research on social change in East Eurasia, particularly in East Asian societies. We study various phenomena affecting the region from within and outside, with a focus on the issue of “declining birthrates, aging populations, and their conflicts”.
