1. Background and Objectives:
The structure of the world and human society is fluctuating fundamentally. With the rise of unprecedented global challenges and crises, rapid changes take place in areas that are the basis of our daily lives, including politics, economics, culture, and environment. Conventional knowledge or common sense is not always effective to cope with such changes or problems.
People of all over the world need to discuss and cooperate with each other in earnest to comprehend the various aspects of the changes resulting from the complex entanglement of all sorts of factors. Then, we will be able to find the paths to solutions for the problems the globe and humanity are facing. In this way, we will also be able to find the best ideas to shape the world and human society in the future and the way towards its realization.
In mutual understanding of the aforementioned background, UTokyo and CIAS agree that the aim of Tokyo Forum 2019 shall be the establishment of a new global forum that provides a meeting place of people, including, but not limited to, those in academia, government, business, NPOs, from all over the world. The two institutions will cooperate to encourage the participants to freely shape and sharpen information and opinions on the solutions to the problems faced by the current world and on the shape of the world and human society in the future.

2. Perspectives:
One of the important characteristics of this forum is that it is planned by a distinguished Japanese academic institution, which has produced lots of innovative ideas and knowledge over a century, in close collaboration with a Korean NPO, CIAS, which endeavors to contribute to global academic development and the prosperity of human society. So far no similar attempt has been made in Japan, Korea or the rest of the world.
This forum would provide fresh and innovative East Asian viewpoints with high academic quality and will play the role of a platform for further discussions with people coming from all over the world on the various issues that the contemporary world faces. Excellent academic quality of the discussions and propositions at the forum will give a strong impact on policy-makers, business people and intellectuals in general, in both Japan and beyond its border.
