アイキャッチ画像:The Hedge / Round 2

"In this second session, we will discuss "Group Psychology Learned from Conflicts" with reference to the situation in Russia and Ukraine.
We will talk about group violence and conflicts that occur repeatedly in human history, and from the perspective of social psychology, we will discuss the "group psychology" common to these conflicts and the mental mechanisms that give rise to them.
Experts on Ukrainian and Japanese politics will also be invited to discuss the current situation in Ukraine in more depth, making this an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone, not only in organizational management, but also in acquiring recent information in a more understandable way.
