Coexistence in the contemporary world has become a mode for self-understanding as cultural, social, economic and political horizons broaden. Once, terms like “East Asia” and “Far East” were dusky notions in the minds of most Europeans. Now, this has changed, as have our conceptions of the world and ourselves.

AsiaRes is a public and academic facility that takes up the mission to instigate exchange between East Asia and the Baltics and promote learning!
