Japan-Russia Student Conference 2024

Japan-Russia Student Conference 2024

31 January 2024


Don’t miss the unique opportunity to visit Japan, contribute to Japan-Russia relations and build bridges between the two countries and personal ties between the participants.

We are pleased to invite you to participate in Japan-Russia Student Conference (JRSC), which will take place 11–23 August 2024 in Tokyo. The official language of JRSC is English.

The first conference was held in the late 1980s. Since then its main goal has been to bring Russian and Japanese students together to discuss the issues that remain on the agenda of both countries and the international community. The conference aims to uphold the exchange of cultural experience for further development of Japan-Russia relations.

JRSC-2024 will be held in Tokyo, Japan. According to the tradition of the conference, the host country covers almost all the expenses (accommodation, partly transportation and meals) except for airfare and personal expenses. Make sure you have enough finances.

The following topics were chosen for the future discussion this year:

  1. Social disparity. Situation of ethnic minorities, gender gap, income levels, inter-regional discrepancy, immigration and refugees, educational inequality.
  2. Cultural identity. Backgrounds of national identities, creation of nation state, national foundation myths, characteristics, beliefs, practices, and values that define individuals or communities in Japan and Russia, traditions, customs, heritage, and self-perception.
  3. Environmental issues. Interdisciplinary approaches for the confrontation against the environmental problems in Russia and Japan, technical methods and macro-scale policies.

Two participants who will distinguish themselves during JRSC-2024 will be granted the right to take part in JRSC-2025 on simpler terms. Do not miss the opportunity to prove yourself and be selected as a participant for the next year.

In order to have a chance to take part in the JRSC-2024, please fill in and submit the online application form until January 31 inclusive.
