Upcoming Events

“Intangibles, Inequality, and Prolonged Stagnation” Lecture by Prof. KIYOTAKI Nobuhiro

イベント予定講演会/Lecture

Wednesday, 24 August 2022 3:00pm-4:30pm JST

In this webinar, Prof. Kiyotaki discusses how production and income distribution interact with accumulation of intangible capital over time and across individuals. He constructs an economic model in which the younger generation acquires and accumulates intangible capital through the on-the-job training. He shows that, although the development of mid-career labor markets improves the match between firms and workers, such development may increase inequality and lead to long-term stagnation. In response, he will examine the effects of policies that promote basic education and the acquisition of skills outside of firms.

Family and Inequality: “Diverging Destinies” in Japan? Lecture by Prof. James RAYMO

イベント予定講演会/Lecture

Tuesday, 13 September 2022, 5:00-6:30pm

How relevant are theoretical frameworks developed in the U.S. and Europe for understanding patterns of family change and socioeconomic inequality in Japan? I begin to address this question by synthesizing the results of several recent papers on socioeconomic differences in family demographic behavior and children’s well-being in Japan.

Previous Events

Tokyo College Lecture “How the Russo-Ukrainian War is Changing European International Order: The Perspective from Japan”

イベント予定共催/Joint Event講演会/Lecture

Friday, 29 July 2022, 3:00-5:00 pm (Doors open: 2:30 pm)

The Russo-Ukrainian War is changing the structure of international order and security in Western Europe. Did it mend the EU's diplomatic and security divisions in Western Europe, or did it reaffirm them?
How is Japan's response to the war in Russia and Ukraine perceived in the West, and how will it affect Japan's future relations with Western nations?

“The Future of Europe and the EU-Japan Partnership: The War in Ukraine and its Impact on Europe and Beyond” Lecture by H.E. Herman Van Rompuy

イベント予定共催/Joint Event講演会/Lecture

“Rereading Proust in 2022” Lecture by Prof. Antoine Compagnon

イベント予定講演会/Lecture

Thursday, 23 June 2022, 4:00-5:30 pm (Doors open: 3:30 pm)

In 2022, we are commemorating the centennial of Marcel Proust's death with an extraordinary salvo of publications, exhibitions, and acclamations. “Proust is the man of the year,” advertised the Italian magazine La Repubblica on New Year’s Day. It gives us an occasion to evaluate the magnitude of his novel, Remembrance of Things Past or In Search of Lost Time, and also to compare this anniversary with the previous one, 1971, a century after Proust’s birth. His star hasn’t stopped rising.

“Rethinking Methodology in Global Diplomacy” Lecture by Prof. SHIMAZU Naoko

イベント予定講演会/Lecture

Tuesday, 7 June 2022, 4:00-5:30 pm (Doors open: 3:30pm)

Why do we need to rethink about the way we study and make sense of global diplomacy? In this lecture, I explore how cultural approaches can illuminate important aspects of diplomacy which have not been adequately considered in much of the existing scholarly literature.

“Globalisation, Empires, and the Making of the Modern World” Lecture by Prof. A. G. Hopkins

イベント予定講演会/Lecture

Friday, 13 May 2022, 15:00-16:30 (Doors open: 14:40)

This talk describes three phases of globalisation that have occupied the last five centuries and their role in making the world we know today. The first two phases were associated with the rise of Western empires, which integrated large parts of the world through a process of compulsory globalisation. The third phase, which began after 1945, brought empires to an end and produced the current world order - and disorder.

“Trade war, global pandemic, Ukraine: What we know, and don’t know, about the new political and economic order” Lecture by Mr. Bill Emmott

イベント予定講演会/Lecture

10 May 2022, 3:00-4:30 pm (Doors open: 2:40 pm)

Recent years have featured the US-China trade war, the coronavirus pandemic, and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, each of which we can consider “radically uncertain” events that were not in any real sense predictable. This lecture seeks to identify how these events fit into conventional frameworks for explaining the world, how these events might have changed that framework, what elements of the framework remain unknown, and how we should respond to this age of uncertainty.
