India is home to more than 100 million Adivasis, or “tribals”. Although traditionally seen as marginalized or relatively isolated from the mainstream political life of the Indian nation, Adivasi groups have in recent decades become increasingly entangled in a more complex and often contradictory relationship with the governing structures of the state. In this seminar, three leading international experts on India’s Adivasis explore the crucial dimensions of this relationship.

In this seminar, Jyrki Kallio defines the characteristics of the "political religion" affecting the East Asian societies, based on the belief of Heaven as the ruler of man's fate.

For centuries, Grand Unity was the "unifying principle between the past and present". This presentation discusses the extent to which this still holds true for East Asia.
