Understanding Japanese foreign policy is of extreme importance to studies of international relations. During the twentieth century, Japan became one of the most powerful countries in the worldhaving consolidated itself as the world’s third biggest economyas well as becoming a favored destination for foreign investments, and for having an ancient culture. The understanding of the country is of vital importance for analyses on the Asian region and its insertion in the world. 

 

The School of International Relations at FGV (FGV RI) and the Japan House in São Paulo have organized a Lecture Series about Japan, with specials guests from Japanese organizations and universities, in which the main subjects of the country’s policy and international integration will be discussed.
