RIHN Initiative for Chinese Environmental Issues
What is RIHN-China?
Welcome to RIHN-China.
The RIHN Initiative for Chinese Environmental Issues (RIHN-China) was founded by the Research Institute for Humanity and Nature (RIHN) in 2007. This initiative is one of six area research centers founded by the National Institute for the Humanities. The remaining five centers are located at Waseda University, Keio University, the University of Tokyo, Toyo Bunko (the Oriental Library), and Kyoto University and are focusing on China’s economics, history, politics, society and so on. All research centers are dedicated to the promotion of contemporary China studies and the encouragement of young scholars.
RIHN-China, in particular, is concentrating on a number of interdisciplinary investigations focusing on Chinese environmental issues based upon RIHN research projects which have been implemented in several areas of China. In addition to the collection of information related to China’s environmental changes, we are promoting various field surveys regarding different social actors’ environmental consciousness and pro-environmental behavior. RIHN-China is also making an effort to form a new network which includes research institutions and individual researchers, and various social actors as well.
RIHN-China also publishes a newsletter entitled “Ten-Chi-Jin,” which addresses, in broad terms, the relationship between humanity and nature.
