<p class="fs120 mb-10"><strong>RESPECT Program Satellite Office established at Universitas Gadjah Mada in Indonesia</strong></p>
<p>The Doctoral Program for Multicultural Innovation (RESPECT Program) has established a partnership with the Program on Humanitarian Action at the Department of International Relations, Universitas Gadjah Mada. Universitas Gadjah Mada is located in Yogyokarta, in the center of Java, Indonesia, and has become the location of the very first satellite office for the RESPECT Program.</p>
<p>Indonesia shares many similarities with Japan. For example, it is vulnerable to natural disasters, such as earthquakes. It is also a region that has experienced civil unrest as a result of friction among differing cultures, ethnic groups and religions. At Universitas Gadjah Mada, RESPECT Program students will be able to conduct research while also getting involved in surveys and practical work in disaster prevention measures focusing on citizen safety and humanitarian action. The establishment of this satellite office will also allow Osaka University to conduct further research on management rooted in a solid understanding of Indonesian culture and ethnicity, with a specific view of developing economic partnerships between Indonesia and Japan.</p>
