New Challenges for Peace and Security in East Asia: Perspectives on Japan’s Future

Under the leadership of Prime Minister Abe, the Japanese government is proactively working to solve the major challenges Japan faces. Consul-General Kato discusses these challenges and outlines Japan’s path forward to prosperity.

Consul-General Motohiko Kato arrived to Consulate-General of Japan in Nashville in October 2012 by way of Manila, where he most recently served as Deputy Chief of Mission of the Japanese Embassy in the Philippines. A career diplomat, he entered the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) in 1982 after passing Japan’s foreign-service examination. Consul-General Kato’s primary mission is to care for Japanese citizens in their families residing in the Southeast, protect the interests of Japanese companies, and promote Japanese culture and business throughout these five states.

Institutional Partnerships in India: Srimati Basu

The UK Asia Center wants to connect UK and India on an institutional level. Srimati Basu, an associate professor in the Departments of Gender & Women’s Studies and Anthropology and a member of the Asia Center Steering Committee, went on a trip to India to tour potential partner institutions in February 2012. The tour was organized by the International Academic Partnership Program, part of the Institute of International Education, and took her through Delhi, Hyderabad, and Mumbai. In this podcast, Basu discusses the trip, the Asia Center's role in forming institutional partnerships, and the challenges result from the differences between the Indian educational system and our own.
