"The challenges of information society: a Japanese perspective"
Globalization and the growing connectivity/ interdependence of the world have challenged Japan in reshaping its institutions and practices during the last decades. The country faces similar challenges as many European countries – globalization and economic competitiveness, declining demography, digitalization, changing needs on the employment market which all have a deep impact on the organization of education. Japan faces the challenges to adjust to global trends, but, at the same time, to retain its unique culture and identity in the changing world of the 21st century.
With the new EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement in background which entered into force in February 2019, our conference/ doctoral seeks to strengthen and expand the dialogue between Japan and Estonia/ Europe and discuss the contemporary societal challenges and solutions with experts from and on Japan.
