Research:Wide-Scale Study Project:Asia-Vision Survey

The Asia-Vision survey


Purpose of the survey

The Asia-Vision survey is an attitude survey of students at Asian universities and graduate schools. The respondents to this survey will become leaders with the capability of shouldering the responsibilities of nation-building in their countries. We are exploring their values, interests, and attitudes toward neighboring countries. We would like to draw the future of Asia, which they will build. That future is the "Asia-Vision".

However, there are few multilateral attitude surveys of students in Asia. Thus, the Asia-Vision Survey is sure to be valuable from not only a research standpoint, but will be very attractive to common people as well.
