Conference Report from the conference on Swedish East Asia research in Gothenburg, April 26-27, 2018

On April 26-27, 2018, the Institute for Security and Development Policy (ISDP) organized the second installment of the conference series East Asia Research in Sweden. The first conference in the series took place in May 2017 in Stockholm and provided an arena to discuss the current state of East Asia Research in Sweden. This year, we set out to explore deeper what a shared agenda for Swedish East Asia Research could look like, whether a shared agenda is possible, and how it could be put into action. This time around the conference took place at the University of Gothenburg. In this conference report, we summarize the day’s panel discussions and their findings.

A special thanks goes to the Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences, who through generous funding made this conference possible, and to the University of Gothenburg who provided the conference venue. We would also like to thank all speakers and audience for their active engagement and participation.
