ERIA/JENESYS Next Leaders Program 2010/2011


In order to nurture strong leadership in the region for economic integration and to bridge the gap between advanced and developing areas, it is important to improve the competency of a wide-range of policy-makers, administrators and researchers. It is also crucial to nurture a new generation of global and regional policy leaders, true leaders, who can analyze issues and resolve any problems from an international and regional perspective. To meet these demand, ERIA, (with the support from ASEAN Secretariat and Japanese Government), commenced the ERIA/JENESYS Next Leadership Program which aims to provide a scholarship in some of the highest ranked graduate Universities in Japan, for those who have ambitions to become future leaders in East Asia and ASEAN.
