The 7th CAAS Symposium (October 2016)

From October 22 to 23, 2016, Tokyo University of Foreign Studies hosted the 7th international symposium organized by "The Consortium for Asian and African Studies (CAAS)." CAAS is comprised of seven institutions including TUFS, which are world-leading institutions for research and education of Asian and African studies.

The symposium was held following the 6th symposium hosted by Hankuk University of Foreign Studies of Korea. Each institution of CAAS is obliged to host an annual symposium in turn.
During the symposium, 35 researchers from CAAS institutions (INALCO, SOAS, Columbia University, Leiden University, NUS, HUFS and TUFS) made presentations on their research, based on the theme of "Crossing the Boundaries: Asians and Africans on the Move". From TUFS, seven senior researchers and seven young researchers participated and they gained valuable experience by meeting top-level researchers from all over the world.
