International Reserach Group for Transregional & Emerging Area Studies.
ITEAS ONG – Think Tank ( Japan)
The International Reserach Group for Transregional & Emerging Area Studies is a non-profit, nonpartisan, and multidisciplinary Non Governmental Organization. It was launched in 1994 with support from the Institute of Oriental Studies at the University of Tokyo.
This initiative resulted in the largest mobilization of Scholars, Civil Society and experts interested in Emerging Areas in Asia, Middle East and Africa, and aiming to contribute to the prosper future of these areas in different aspects.
Serving as a combination think-tank and Research group, ITEAS is working to ensure that these emerging areas assume its rightful place in the knowledge base of all. As we highlight the richness and diversity of these areas, as well as the economic opportunities that they offer, we continue to acquaint public opinion, policy makers and scholars with the various aspects of political, security, economic and cultural structures of several areas and their dynamism.
In the past year, we were working to reach some of our academic goals while simultaneously providing strategic and crucial information to policymakers and stakeholders in an effort to stimulate constructive action for a good governance, and socioeconomic growth management in the world.
