Toyo University Holds Its AY 2017 Peace Studies Program in Cooperation with the University of Tromsø

Thirteen Faculty of Law students and one Faculty of Literature student participated in the University’s Peace Studies programme conducted in cooperation with the University of Tromsø, Norway from Feb. 4 (Sun.) to 27 (Tues.), 2018. The students attended a number of lectures on various topics related to Education, Development and Peace. The topics dealt with in this year’s programme were as follows:

● Peace Education - its purpose, practical application and evaluation
● Relationship between indigenous peoples and the nation state
● Stereotypes and prejudices in society
● Humiliation and dignity
● Gender relations in Scandinavia

The intensive courses comprised lectures given by Professor Vidar Vambheim and other colleagues from the University of Tromsø during the morning, and seminars by Dr. James Short, an Associate Professor of the Faculty of Law, Toyo University in the afternoon. Over the days the programme was held, our students were able to strengthen their relationships with students at the University of Tromsø and with students who participated in this programme from Tokyo University of Foreign Studies.

One of the features of this programme was to learn about the lives of the Sami people, an indigenous ethnic group living in the northern part of the Scandinavian Peninsula. During the last four days of the programme, the students visited the region of the Arctic where the Sami people live and experienced some aspects of life in the tundra. The places we visited in the region were as follows.

● The Cultural Centre for Northern Peoples
● The Sami television and radio stations
● The Sami Parliament of Norway
● A Sami high school
● The Sami University College

All of the students who participated in this programme listened intently to the lectures and seminars and engaged proactively in the activities. They all completed the programme successfully and will soon submit essays to the University of Tromsø. Following this they will receive a Certificate of Course Completion.

<参加学生の感想 / Students' thoughts about the program>

T.W   (2nd Grade student)
I am sure that this experience can contribute to the determination of my graduate school. Norway and Japan are far away from each other, but we have similar cultures. For example, both countries have indigenous people like the Sami and the Ainu. Through participation in this programme I was able to learn that people all over the world have a common purpose of seeking peace.

◆H.I   (2nd Grade student)
Through my experiences on this programme, I learned the reality of what indigenous people have actually experienced and felt. I also learned the necessity of Peace Studies. It is important to learn from the lives of indigenous people. We need to know how they feel and what they have experienced in order to unite as humans. Basically I learned that there is no real difference between people.

◆K.T  (1st Grade student)
What impressed me the most on this programme was the meaning of Peace Education for a peaceful country like Japan. I lacked awareness to recognize that all the people of the world live on the same planet earth. Even now there are a lot of countries which face serious situations. Therefore we need to study Peace Education to support them as a part of the human race. 

◆H.M (1st Grade student)
What could we learn on this programme in Tromsø University? I didn’t only study “peace”, it was more impressive and changed my typical thoughts about peace. In Japan we don’t study Peace Education so much, but it is necessary for us living in a developed country. This programme gave me great experiences, knowledge, great friends and courage. I hope many students will take this programme and learn about things that are essential for their life.
