World Peace, Thoughtfulness, Respect and Language Education: What Can Japanese Language Education Contribute?

There are many people who have different backgrounds (e.g., ethnicity, religion, language etc.) in the world. These differences should make the world richer and more interesting, but in reality, they create more challenges. Some attack or exclude people who have different backgrounds, while some think about just themselves, ignore, or are indifferent to others. Current challenges include, but are not limited to, hate speech, terrorism, and conflict with immigrants and refugees. What can the Japanese language education do to make the world more thoughtful, respectful, and peaceful? In this Forum, we would like to provide a platform to discuss what language education including Japanese language education can contribute to the world and our local communities.
