#012009/10/02 Orientation
- Lecture Material (Prof. Umegaki, pdf)
Four "architects" of this joint course will introduce the students to
its overall goal, and the system of computer and human networks which
supports it. 

#022009/10/09 Dialogue among different religious faith; Possibility and Problems
- Lecture Material (pdf)
"Asia" is not a natural whole, but is a complex of interactions of
people culturally, politically, economically motivated. This section
is meant to be a modest introduction to East Asia. 

#032009/10/16 Security Architecture in Asia-Pacific
- Lecture Material (pdf)
Following the introduction Session 2, we move into "Conflictual
Dimension of East Asia." East Asia is one of the last which still
sustains the legacies of the Cold War: a divided Korea, the
transitional economis of China, Vietnam, and Laos. The region is also
a frontier of something new: the non-traditional security issues such
as human trafficking and others.

#042009/10/23 日中朝(韓)の文明意識と文化意識
- Lecture Material (pdf)
The one of the few remaining divided countries in Asia, the Korean
perspective on conflict in Asia offers much to share with us. 

#052009/10/30 Beyond Major and Minor Powers
- 阪田先生講義資料(pdf) [Enrolled Students Only]
Regardless of the Asian Financial crisis, East Asia continues to draw
the attentions of the major powers. Given the complexity of the power
interaction, East Asia may be a unique region where major and minor
power distinctions may mean much.

#062009/11/06 Transformation of A Nation: The Case of Thailand
This part, Wealth or Health, shifts our perspective inwardly.
Thailand, one of the East Asian Miracle of the 80s, has undergone a
fundamental transformation of its economy beginning late in the 60s,
while minimizing the divisive internal strife. This is a nation whose
recent past offers a miniature of what the pursuit of wealth may
accompany with it. 

Much of Asia still remains "rural." Yet, rural Asia is not immune to
the radical transformation evident in urban Asia.

#082009/11/27 Transforming Rural Population: the case of China
- Lecture material (pdf)
China is both rich and poor. China is both urban and rural. The 
eyond the boundary of rich and poor, and of rual and poor, are
transforming themselves in their own accord.

#092009/12/04 AIDS pandemic and global response - progress and remaining challenges -
- Lecture Material (pdf)
East Asia contains some societies who have successfully dealt with 
onslaught of HIV in the 80s and 90s, but as a whole is bracing itself
against the second (or 3rd) wave of HIV pandemic.

#102009/12/11 Human Security and East Asia
- Lecture Material (pdf)
Final Part deals with a new perspective on the issues that touch upon
the core of human life: safe and secure daily life and the means to
insure them.

#112009/12/18 Synthetic Approach on the Rehabilitation of Degraded TropicalForest
- Lecture Material (pdf)
The environmental issues are that which require policy coordination
beyond the national borders while the damages occur within each of
national border. 

#122010/01/08 ODA
Contrary to the popular belief, ODA has never been a "carrot" 
by the developed nations to make the developing nations do what they
want. Asian financial crisis of 1997 and its aftermath also helped
creat the environment for ODA-led initiatives to become far more
locally-customized policy endeavour. 

#132010/01/09 【非公開】Asia as one or Asia as many
Asia is a multi-layered complex where a large number of international
and regional organizations intimately interact, bi-lateral and
multi-lateral policy coordinations criss-cross all sorts of policy
issues. Why not East Asian community, then?
