Special Lecture: "What exactly is Peace?" (Visiting Prof. Genshitsu SEN)

2013-1-21 (Mon) 2:40 p.m. - 4:10 p.m.

The Osaka School of International Public Policy (OSIPP) in cooperation with the 5th group, Institute for Academic Initiatives ("Doctoral Program for Multicultural Innovation"), is presenting a special lecture by Visiting Professor SEN Genshitsu, a UNESCO good-will ambassador, Chairperson of the Japan Association for the United Nations, and tea master of the Urasenke family. Professor Sen will present a special lecture entitled "What exactly is Peace?" on Monday, January 21.

Professor Sen, an advocate of the philosophy of way-learning-truth, "Peacefulness through a bowl of tea," has made over 300 demonstrations in 60 countries around the world. At both the United Nations General Assembly as well as the starting point of the Pacific War, the Arizona Memorial at Hawaii's Pearl Harbor, he has performed a Prayer for Peace Tea Ceremony. He is active in promoting world peace through the promotion and demonstration of the culture of Japanese tea ceremony.

Prof. Sen will be in charge of OSIPP's "United Nations System" course. Furthermore, in 2013, in conjunction with the actual start of the future-directed "Doctoral Program for Multicultural Innovation," he will be involved in actual training for researchers, the knowledge, techniques, attitude and dynamism of the course, and designing the shared model for reciprocal enhancement.

In this special lecture --true world peace-- he raises the question "What exactly is Peace?" asking each of us to think what is it we can do, as we move toward realization of a multicultural society.
