This year marks the 50th year since the foundation of the Japan Association for African Studies. Tireless scholarly activities and contributions by members since its establishment have positioned this association as a leading Japanese academic society for regional studies. After 50 years, the time has come for sharing with the rest of the world the achievements in African studies in Japan that our precursors have accumulated over the years. On the other hand, the need for African studies and factors related to studies continue to diversify and are becoming more globalized, amidst Asian economic development and an increase of its presence within the world community. Challenges for the future include assimilating the international changes in African studies as the source of energy in the development of African studies in Japan. Also, research activities in Africa will require more contributions in the future.
As 60 years have passed since the Bandung Conference, the relationship between Asia and Africa continues to change form while continuing to deepen. As one of the countries of Asia, we would like to take this delightful opportunity to celebrate the 50th year of JAAS. With the coming together of major Asian researchers on African studies and African scholars of Asian regional studies to share experiences in their respective streams of study, we commence this international conference in the hope of gaining common ground upon which we could base future cooperation for trans-continental research.
