It is an interdisciplinary organization across the Doctoral programs of the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences as well as the Masters Program in Area Studies of the University of Tsukuba. IFERI was initiated by researchers of joint programs and seeks to encourage both faculty and students of single-discipline programs to engage in education and research in terms of a broader perspective.
