The Agreement between the Russian and Eurasian Studies Centre of St Antony's College, University of Oxford and the SRC of Hokkaido University was signed on March 12, 2004. The aim of this agreement is to foster the exchange of scholars and to collaborate in research on topics of mutual interest.
The Russian and Eurasian Studies Centre was launched in 2003 succeeding the preeminent Russian and East European Studies Centre, established in 1953 (http://www.sant.ox.ac.uk/russian/index.shtml). Archie Brown and Alex Pravda (the present Director) of the Centre enjoy a worldwide reputation. The change of the name in 2003 seems to suggest its eastward orientation. Thus, Alex Pravda and IEDA Osamu, former Director of the SRC, agreed to conclude the above-mentioned agreement. The SRC has concluded the same kind of greement with the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies of Harvard University, the Institute of History, Archaeology, and Ethnography of Far Eastern Nations, Far Eastern Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Vladivostok), the Institute of East European, Russian and Central Asian Studies of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Beijing) and several other institutes in the world.
As for concrete measures concerning the agreement with the Russian and Eurasian Studies Centre of St Antony's College, besides inviting Professor Pravda to our winter international symposium in December 2004, we are planning to invite a graduate student of the Centre to Sapporo for two months from February 2005.
