June 9, 2017

On Wednesday 26 th October 2016, TUFS's School of Language and Culture Studies hosted a lecture entitled 'Soft Power Diplomacy', inviting Ms. Hamaguchi Ai (Ministry of Foreign Affairs Minister for Cultural Affairs and Overseas Public Relations).

Beginning with a definition of soft power and public diplomacy, the talk covered soft power diplomacy through the exchange of culture and the arts; Japanese language education; and in addition Japanese research and intellectual exchange, and was a valuable opportunity to consider the degree to which the learning at the school of Language and Culture Studies is connected to diplomacy in the real world. In addition, there was an active question and answer session.
