Public Forum: Voices from the Ground - Civil Society Reports from Japan

August 08, 2011

On the evening of July 21, 2011 the Japan Foundation New York in partnership with the Japan Center for International Exchange (JCIE) and Asia Society hosted a public forum where select figures from the Japanese Civil Society reported on the current state of the affected regions in Japan, as well as what has been done and what will be done.

The forum answered such questions as: What is the current status of the Japanese disaster areas? What are the needs for mid and long-term reconstruction? How is Japan’s civil society collaborating with the international community in the recovery process?

Co-organized by: Asia Society; The Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership, New York; Japan Center for International Exchange (JCIE)

Cooperating organizations: Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry in New York; The Nippon Club; US-Japan Council; Japan Society
