Umegaki briefly introduces the current as well as past research 
projects, and basic policy interest of the two instructors of the 
course. The introduction will be followed by a brief outline of what 
this course is meant, supplemented by a simple account of what 
“policy management” (sougouseisakugaku) is about. We will also

“human security” issue. Though historical in nature, the 
examination should turn up some concepts for both heuristic and 
analytical purposes. 
b) Policy Research and Management: We will discuss how a 
“research” requires a certain degree of neutrality – commitment to 
context-free explanation – and equally acute sense of its 
consequences of (or responsibility for) what it produces in the 
actual context of life.

security issues are not always accompanied by cataclysmic events. We 
need to understand how ordinary people try to lead their life and 
see if there are any hint of coping with the human insecurity in 
such normal conduct of life. In this and the following two sessions, 
we call our attention to East Asia: what we think we know and what 
we don’t know about (South)east Asia, a frontier of human security.
