Message from the IGS Department Head

“Everything that I thought was obvious or normal, wasn’t really obvious or normal.” That’s what Japan taught me when I came here as an exchange student from Germany many years ago. New discoveries in the world start from questioning your own beliefs and opinions. All of you who are curious about the world, why don’t you come to IGS? Let us build the capacity to search for new ways of thinking, to connect with other people, to think in an integrative manner and to imagine the world together in order to start acting!
