Fondation France-Japon de l'EHESS

Established in 2009 and located at the heart of Paris, the France-Japan Foundation (FFJ) of the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales(EHESS) aims to promote academic collaboration between Japan and France and to enhance dialogue and exchanges through a network of public and private partners to improve the understandings of Japan. 

The FFJ encourages an interdisciplinary approach to the humanities and social science. Its main activities include the development of invitation programs in France for Japanese researchers and specialists of Japan; the implementation of partnerships with research institutions in France and abroad; the organization of conferences and seminars; publication and translation of research outcomes and academic articles; support for the activities of both junior and senior researchers. 

The Center for French-Japanese Advanced Studies in Paris (CEAFJP) was established in 2014 to provide researchers with the best possible access to French research resources and networks. The Center is hosted by the EHESS, an institution with a strong international vocation, which gestures toward the interdisciplinarity and the transversality of research questions and methods in the field of social science. 

Research notes series published by the FFJ prior to the arrival of our guest researchers, has two main objectives. It creates an opportunity to present the works of our guest researchers to our colleagues in and outside the EHESS, while also being a means of raising general awareness of the diversity of approaches related to Japan and Asia through their pedagogical format. 

Reflecting our desire to bridge the gap between academic community and the business world, the FFJ has been successful in mobilizing large-scale corporations to engage in collaborations in  humanities and social science, offering researchers valuable opportunities.
