U of T establishes first-in-Canada chair in Japanese politics and global affairs

Japan is contributing US$5 million to the University of Toronto to establish an endowed chair in Japanese politics and global affairs, and to launch a Centre for the Study of Global Japan. 

The University of Toronto is the first Canadian university to receive such support from the Japanese government.

The announcement comes on the heels of the Japan-Canada Summit in May 2016 when Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe noted that Japan wished to support Japanese studies at Canadian universities in order to promote mutual understanding between the two countries.
