Omoiyari er et japansk konsept som direkte kan oversettes til å bety "medfølelse", men som på et dypere plan betyr å verdsette forskjellene mellom mennesker, å forstå andres ståsted, og å minimere misnøye ved å kunne forutsi andres ønsker. I dette seminaret vil Alma Karabeg presentere hva Omoiyari er, historikken bak konseptet, og hvordan det praktiseres i dagens Japan. I tillegg vil hun også drøfte internasjonaliseringstiltak, og Omoiyari i det norske samfunnet i en mellomkulturell kontekst.

During the Suharto era, the official trade union was strictly prohibited from engaging with political parties and all but one of the ‘alternative’ unions publically rejected political unionism, preferring instead to seek recognition as a socio-economic force. Today, trade unions’ efforts to engage in electoral politics are tremendously significant for Indonesia’s emerging democracy.

Datta-Ray engages India’s nuclear diplomacy in the terms of its makers and their analytical categories to offer rare insights into the little known world of the key decision makers themselves.

Harald Bøckman, who served as coordinator of the Network for Asia Studies from 1996 to his retirement in 2015, has been academically anchored in Sinology. Youthful irresponsibility misled him into Chinese studies in 1966, the year Chinese language was established as an academic discipline in Norway. At the time, studying Chinese was widely regarded as politically suspect by many, and as an entrance to various forms of utopia by others. In fact, it was hard work.
