Abe Fellows Global Forum 2017

12-Dec-2017 The Abe Fellowship Program, a partnership between The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership (CGP) and the Social Science Research Council (SSRC), launched a new initiative, the Abe Fellows Global Forum (Abe Global). Designed to bring Abe Fellow research and expertise on pressing issues of global concern to broader audiences, three events were held this autumn. The first two events were in Houston at the Asia Society Texas Center on October 18th, and at Stanford University on October 20th, respectively. The topic at both events was, “Confronting Climate Change: What Can the U.S. and Japan Contribute to Creating Sustainable Societies?” The third event was in New York at Columbia University on November 10th, on “Japan and the Leadership of the World Trading System.”
