The ASEAN-Japan Academic Forum aims at providing a platform to promote young ASEAN researchers in Japan, as well as Japanese researchers doing research related to the 10 ASEAN countries. The Forum also hopes to create further opportunities for greater cooperation between ASEAN and Japanese researchers, through the sharing of knowledge and expertise. Organised by the ASEAN Youth Network in Japan (AYNJ), this project aspires to advance research in ASEAN, and the furtherance of ASEAN young researchers themselves.
This year, six students from ASEAN countries will share their research on history, disaster resilience, water resources management, migration, and education. We are pleased to introduce this year’s oral presenters and their presentation topics.
