香港自由黨 = Liberal PartyCitation:
In 1993, a group of us consisting predominantly of business and professional people, some of whom serving politicians of the time, decided to join forces to work for a better future for Hong Kong. For this very meaningful purpose, we founded the Liberal Party. Our vision was to build a caring society that would create wealth by maintaining the values of a free market. We also set out to protect the freedom and lifestyle of the Hong Kong people.http://www.liberal.org.hk/ more Language: chi Chinese, eng English

Since 1992, Asia Inc. has been a strong and fresh voice in Asia. With its exclusive interviews with some of Asia’s most prominent heads of states, corporate executives, and unique in-depth stories, vivid photography, surveys and info-graphics maps of new and different trends in Asia, the magazine has long stood out as a new publishing voice of Asia.

Asia Inc’s many exclusive interviews with Asian leaders have included former President Jiang Zemin of China, Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad of Malaysia, Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra of Thailand and His Majesty, The Sultan of Brunei.

Apart from established personalities, Asia Inc’s appeal lies in its ability to seek out the new generation of leaders and decision makers in Asia.http://www.asia-inc.com/ more Language: eng English
中搜 = Zhongsou.comDescription:
Zhongsou is said to be the largest Chinese search engine. The seven major chinese portals Sina 新浪
, Sohu 搜狐
, NetEase 网易
, China.org.cn 中国网
, and 3721.com
reportedly now all feature search through Zhongsou. However, the portals display the search-results in different ways, sometimes there seems to be no connection at all between the portal's results. The search engine recently was strong at finding chinese news, but it also offers Web- and media-search, too. Advanced search 高级搜索 offers AND, OR, NOT boolean operators, a "site:"- and "link:"-search, a preferences 个性设置 page that can be used for combinig the indexes, and a help page. There is also a searchable discussion forum. For more information cf. an article from people.com.cn, a WWW news service by the People's Daily, at http://www.people.com.cn/GB/it/1066/2261301.html

The Ming-Ch'ing Studies Group,as reflected by its website,is an interdisciplinary study assembly initiated by and composed primarily of research fellows at Academia Sinica whose scholarly activity focuses on the Ming and Ch'ing dynasties. Beginning in the late 1980's and early 1990's, the group started with scholars from eight different institutes in the humanities (Institute of History and Philology, Institute of Modern History, Institute of Ethnology, Institute of Economics, Sun Yat-sen Institute for Social Sciences and Philosophy, Institute of Chinese Literature and Philosophy, Institute of Taiwan History, and Institute of Sociology) on the grounds of Academia Sinica in Taiwan. The initial reason for the creation of the group was to gather academicians from different fields to exchange ideas to further stimulate intellectual activity.http://mingching.sinica.edu.tw/ more Language: chi Chinese, eng English
The China Dominant-journalism Development Center was established in November 2001 as a source of information for scholars and people from the media sector. CDDC offers articles, analysis, reports and discussion on a wide range of topics related to media in China, authored by journalists, researchers, lawers and other authorities from the field. You shouldn't expect articles running counter to government expectation, though: CDDC is certainly no platform for government dissent. Thus, you will find discussion of the "Mantou" issue (Chen Kaige's "The promise" being spoofed by a short on-line video, "A Murder Caused by Mantou", but a search for "Bingdian" doesn't deliver any clue on the 2006 closing of the popular investigative weekly section of China Youth Daily. The articles are presented in an intelligent way (topical, most recent, most popular, search title, search author) so that you can easily keep track of important issues.http://www.cddc.net/ more Language: chi Chinese
The site also includes a very powerful search facility able to search either the complete site or only certain parts. An extra search facility with predefined search terms (mostly names of scholars such as Qian Mu etc.) is also available.http://www.confucius2000.com/ more Language: chi Chinese
European Association for Japanese Studies Citation:
Welcome to the EAJS! We are an association of scholars and researchers focusing on Japan. Japanese studies is now well established as a field of research and an academic discipline, but for many years researchers in Europe did their work in more or less splendid isolation, separated by linguistic or national barriers or by academic conventions and traditions. While this rich heritage of differences has been a source of constant stimulation and inspiration, we have strongly felt the need to form contacts and exchange information, and it was for that purpose that the European Association for Japanese Studies was formed in 1973.
The general aims of the European Association for Japanese Studies (EAJS) are stimulating interest in and encouraging research in Japanese studies in all the countries of Europe as well as USA and Japan, promoting the flow of information and communication in this particular field of studies through its triennial international conference, but also through symposia and workshops. Furthermore, the EAJS aims at a further increase of its membership. EAJS is open especially to the gradually developing Japanese studies community in Eastern Europe, and tries to integrate and support younger scholars in the field of Japanese studies. Bearing in mind European unification and increasing globalisation, EAJS wishes to strengthen its links to and its co-operation with the national associations for Japanese studies in Europe as well as organizations in Japan, rest of Asia and in the United States. In addition to its scholarly purposes, the EAJS also acts as the representative of European researchers on Japan to safeguard their interests vis-a-vis transnational organizations and their bodies responsible for the funding and direction of research at a European level.
The EAJS also encourages and, whenever possible, supports the formation of national associations for Japanese Studies, most of which were formed much later than EAJS itself, acknowledging that there are purposes, scholarly and political, which can better be served within the smaller unit of a national association.
At the same time, however, the EAJS has been sympathetic to the formation of discipline-oriented sub-groups, which often hold their meetings in conjunction with EAJS conferences. We obviously need both - a trans-disciplinary dialogue for which the EAJS forms an ideal platform, and a deepening of discussions within the discipline, for which the individual conference sections supply a very suitable basis.
The further aim of the EAJS is to help to provide a response to the need to formulate language policies to promote the language-education of Japanese in a stronger manner. This activity is being organized in analysis of current language education policies in Europe and networking with European and Japanese Institutions for the implementation of the Common European Framework not only inside language education (AJE) but also in other education contexts as intercultural education.
As we feel that it is in the interest of all scholars working on Japan, we have recently made an effort to intensify networking and have come to an arrangement of joint membership with the Association for Asian Studies. I am convinced that this will help to link up European scholarship with our colleagues across the Atlantic and beyond.
The EAJS issues a annual Bulletin.
The EAJS gratefully acknowledges the assistance of the Japan Foundation, which has generously supported the invitation of Japanese guest speakers to the conferences since the early 1980s. The Japan Foundation also supplied us with a grant for setting up an office in 1994. The present office is located at Frankfurt University, Germany, and takes care of the membership files, the edition of the Bulletin, and the coordination within the Council as well as handling all other external contacts.
Our international conferences are a good chance to meet colleagues from all over Europe and the rest of the world, and I cordially invite you to take part in them and get to know the activities of the EAJS from a close distance.
An important new activity started in 2000 was the EAJS PhD workshops helping to bring European students studying in Europe, Japan and the United States working on related topics in contact with each other. In the ideal case, such contacts are then further deepened at EAJS conferences.http://www.eajs.eu/ more Language: eng English, jpn Japanese
