SUA Launches Soka Institute for Global Solutions
On May 3, Soka University of America (SUA) launched the Soka Institute for Global Solutions, with the mission of developing a network of people upholding the values of global citizenship and to contribute to the solution of global problems. The idea for the establishment of this research institute came from SUA founder Daisaku Ikeda’s 1987 peace proposal. President of the Sant’Egidio Foundation for Peace and Dialogue in New York Andrea Bartoli will serve as Executive Advisor to the center. Visiting Assistant Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies Tetsushi Ogata will be Managing Director.
