From Meiji University, Serina Suzuki (a fourth-year student in the School of Commerce) participated in the Japan - Canada Academic Consortium (JACAC) Student Forum held at the University of British Columbia in Canada between February 18 and 26. The main theme of the Forum was “Immigration Policies and National Borders: Integration and Exclusion,” which is one of the key issues facing the world today. The 28 students from Japan and Canada gave speeches and engaged in group discussions in English on this theme. The Forum is a short-term student exchange program held by JACAC. It is open to students of universities which are members of the JACAC. Through speeches, discussions, and workshops, the students examine issues in both countries and probe measures for their solution. The Forum also serves to deepen ties among the students and promote mutual understanding of each other's countries.
