Center for Northeast Asian Studies


Miyagi, Japan

CNEAS was established for the purpose of promoting regional studies of Northeast Asia and Japan. There are some main aspects to CNEAS's mission: creating new methodologies in regional studies by developing research methods that integrate cultural and scientific aspects through a combination of studies covering humanities and natural science; promoting academic studies to clarify regional and individual circumstances and conditions as race, history, society, culture, language, natural history, resources, the environment and to determine relationships between these factors; and creating a database to hold the results of research that are useful both now and in the future.
