Statement on behalf of the Japan Association for Social Policy Studies
(JASPS) concerning the Russian Federation’s unprovoked war on Ukraine

Representative of JASPS Makoto ISHII


We unequivocally condemn the Russian Federation’s invasion of Ukraine.
This act of aggression has resulted in a large and growing number of
innocent civilian casualties, military casualties and millions of
displaced refugees. The daily life of Ukrainian people, especially the
lives of children, the elderly, and people with disabilities who need
social support have been torn apart and traumatized. We cannot
tolerate this act of unprovoked aggression. We call upon President
Putin to announce an immediate ceasefire and withdrawal of the Russian
army.

Japanese Academic Societies Unite to Release a Joint Statement to Protect the Independence of the Science Council of Japan

2020-12-02

Japanese scholars have met the Prime Minister Suga’s decision to reject the candidacy of six humanities and social sciences scholars for the Science Council of Japan with grave concern. 226 academic societies in the humanities and social sciences in Japan issued a Joint Statement on November 6th. Since then, the number of co-signers has reached 310. On December 2nd, they issued the same statement in English, gave a press interview and appealed to scholars and citizens worldwide for support and cooperation.

The Science Council of Japan, which is a national academy and not a federation of academic societies, does not directly represent the interests of the societies. Nevertheless, the societies are deeply concerned with the issue as the Prime Minister’s rejection of appointment not only violates the independence of the Science Council of Japan but also further threatens academic freedom, autonomy and democracy in Japan.

See the interview video on the Joint Statement

As one of the societies that have co-signed the Joint Statement, hereby JASPS also releases it.
