  • Overview

    Globalization exerts a great influence on the mobility of human beings, goods, and information, as well as economic activities. What happened in one region affects the life and economic activities of people in another region through a complex process of cause and effect. Especially, regional conflicts and wars as well as environmental and economic issues cause serious problems among nations and ethnic groups. People in the world need to make efforts to build peace and foster mutual understanding using active communication among nations and ethnic and religious groups. One should endeavor to create effective ways of communication while mobilizing knowledge in various fields to this end.
