Cultivating Talented Individuals:Summer School

Joint Summer School 2007, Soul National University, Peking University and Waseda University


Summer School

In 2007 GIARI, Peking University, and Seoul National University held a joint summer seminar on Asian integration. The three-week seminar consisted of three one-week sections, and was hosted in turn by Seoul (July 29 - August 4), Waseda (August 5 - 11), and Peking (August 12 - 18). Each university sent 10 students, most of whom were postgraduates, to the seminar.

Lectures revolved around topics on various political, economic, social, and inter-disciplinary issues in Asia, Japan's comprehensive understanding of those issues as well as her role in solving them. In addition, seminar-style debates were conducted. These lectures prompted all participants to recognize various problems in Asia, helped Korean and Chinese students correctly and objectively understand Japanese attitude, and vice versa.
