The Slavic-Eurasian Research Center’s history goes back to June 24, 1953, when a team of researchers on Slavic Eurasian studies was set up at Hokkaido University. The SRC’s activities and resources are open to society inside and outside Japan, allowing joint research with scholars in related areas and promoting public relations abroad concerning Japanese research activities. The SRC plays a leading role in academic associations and institutions such as the Japan Council of Russian and East European Studies (JCREES, initiated in 1998) and the Japan Consortium for Area Studies (JCAS, initiated in 2004). The Center has concluded academic agreements with foreign institutes, including the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies, Harvard University; the Russian and Eurasian Studies Center of St. Antony’s College, University of Oxford; and the Institute of East European, Russian and Central Asian Studies of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in Beijing.
