Dear Colleagues,

Association of Japanese Business Studies (AJBS), founded in 1987, is an
international association of professionals actively pursuing the exchange
of information and ideas concerning the Japanese business system and its
economic, social and cultural environment. AJBS holds annual conferences at
venues throughout the world, providing an opportunity for discussion of
current developments and research on a range of business, public policy,
and teaching issues related to Japan.

Here, we have collated some up-to-date information for you to browse. We
have included a collection of recent articles and conference information
related to Japanese business studies. We hope you find something useful for
your work!
*The 34th Annual Conference of AJBS * <>

We are extremely happy to welcome you to the 34th annual AJBS conference.
Last year we held the annual conference using an online format due to the
coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic is not over and international conference
travel still poses numerous challenges. Hence, we have once again decided
to hold the AJBS conference using an online format this year.

We are excited to include approximately 30 paper presentations in this
year’s conference program, and a special panel on “Japanese Business in the
Future.” We will also be having a “questions and answers” (Q&A) session to
allow new/emerging scholars in Japanese business studies to ask questions
to senior/experienced researchers and faculty in the area. Finally, we will
have a panel of experienced faculty sharing insights on teaching “about and
in” Japan.
