EastAsiaNet Workshop

ADI at the University of Copenhagen and Copenhagen Business School are the hosts of this year's EastAsiaNet Workshop. Presentations will focus on '"The Good Life" in East Asia' and 'Revisiting the Internationalization of Japan'

EastAsiaNet is a network of leading European research schools with a well-developed social-science focus on East Asia, plus others that aspire to develop in this direction. It takes up issues that surpass the capacity of single institutions in training and in research. Ultimately, it contributes high-level expertise to a European perspective on Euro-Asia relations.
