Japan Open Café – September edition (27 September)
The September edition of Japan Open Café will center around the topic of the Japanese Imperial Family. Emperor Akihito’s plans to abdicate have resulted in a lot of discussion around the world. What kind of social, political, and economic consequences might this have?
As always, two interesting speakers will provide different perspectives on this topic. More information about the speakers will follow soon!
Japan Open Café – November edition (29 November)
In the final Japan Open Café of 2017 we will discuss the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement. This Agreement is intended to remove certain barriers and will affect global trade in many ways. It has been in development for years, but in light of events such as Brexit and the US’ withdrawal from the TPP seems all the more significant.
Once again two speakers will share their views and discuss them with us. The speakers will be announced in the weeks before the event!
