In September 1985, the First IATSS Forum program was held with participants from Malaysia.

The IATSS Forum provides a place where young professionals can gather. Inviting young and outstanding individuals from respective ASEAN countries, the Forum provides opportunities for participants to understand each others’ countries through seminars, field studies, group study, and cultural exchanges, as well as to make efforts to solve current issues in the ASEAN region and Japan, under the motto “Thinking and Learning Together.”

The Forum Program is prepared by the IATSS Forum Program Committee, which is comprised of intellectuals from various circles. The issues to be taken up change each time, depending on the demands of the times. Inviting top-class lecturers from academic societies and business circles, participants will be able to improve their leadership capacity while learning liberal arts, rather than conducting deep research in specific fields.
