Japanese Delegation at UO
Ten students and two professors from Kobe College have came to Poland to gain knowledge about the history and culture of our country and therefore to better understand Europe and its current problems - with a particular emphasis on the issues of migration and position of women in European societies.
The visit is a continuation of cooperation between Kobe College and the University of Opole. Last year students of Cobe College visited our university and early this year Dr. Błażej Choroś went to Kobe to deliver lectures and workshops. Currently the University of Opole and Kobe College are in the process of signing a cooperation agreement, providing for scientific cooperation and the exchange of students and teaching staff.
One of the participants of the visit is Dr. Monika Ksieniewicz, who worked for a year as a visiting professor at Kobe College. She deals with issues related to the position of women, also in Japan.
The group arrives on Wednesday, August 9, and leaves on Friday at noon.
