Asia Leadership Fellow Program

The Asia Leadership Fellow Program (ALFP) seeks to create a close, personal and professional network of public intellectuals in Asia, deeply rooted and committed to civil society beyond their own cultural, disciplinary and geopolitical backgrounds.

In 1996, the International House of Japan and the Japan Foundation jointly created the ALFP. The Program provides selected leaders in the region with an opportunity to reside for two months at the International House of Japan in Tokyo, and to engage in collaborative and individual research/exchange activities.
Since the initiation of the Program, the ALFP has had five to eight Fellows annually from nearly fifteen Asian countries. Over 50 Fellows who come from diverse professional backgrounds, including academia, journalism, publishing, law, education, the arts, NGOs (non-governmental organizations), and non-profit activities have been through the program.
The ALFP seeks to create a close, personal and professional network of public intellectuals in Asia, deeply rooted and committed to civil society beyond their own cultural, disciplinary and geopolitical backgrounds.
More than 60 percent of the world's population lives in the region called Asia, where different social institutions, economic systems, cultures, religions, and ethnicities co-exist. This rich diversity includes a wide variety of problems. There is violence against human life and dignity in the form of socio-economic disparity, environmental deterioration, and racial, religious and cultural conflicts.
