Inspirations for New Students
 

The ceremony offered new students the unique opportunity to find inspiration in the experience of former students. Graduate Yulia Aristova especially addressed the new students in her speech and shared some personal insights from her time studying at the IN-EAST institute. „You are not going to study East Asia – you are going to experience East Asia“, she explained to the freshmen.

AlFreDO Award
 

Philipp Mark was awarded with the AlFreDO Award for the best master thesis on “Japan’s ‘Integrated Social Security and Tax Reform’ from the Perspective of the Political Economy of Policy Reform”. In his laudation, Prof. Werner Pascha pointed out three important steps for IN-EAST studies that Mark had followed exemplary in his work. According to Prof. Pascha the first step is to accumulate information about East Asia, the second step is to ask interesting questions and try out existing theories. The last important step is to use sophisticated empirical methodologies, which are at least close to the state-of-the-art in the disciplinary approaches like economics or sociology.
