About The Japan Association of Economic Geographers (JAEG: Keizai Chiri Gakkai)
The Japan Association of Economic Geographers (JAEG: Keizai Chiri Gakkai) was established in 1954 as the successor of the Economic Geography Forum (Keizai Chiri Danwa Kai), which was founded in 1952, and was then renamed as the Economic Geography Research Group (Keizai Chiri Kenkyu Kai).
Members of the JAEG come from a variety of backgrounds: geographers carrying out sectoral and regional studies in Japan and abroad; economists specializing in industrial location, regional economic, and regional policy theories; policy makers and analysts in local governments and think tanks; and geography teachers in primary and secondary schools.
The JAEG is a national academic association which represents diverse theoretical and methodological approaches. The members of the JAEG conduct their research on industries and regions from diverse perspectives and are advancing empirical and theoretical research on themes such as industrial structural change, regional problems, regional policies, environmental problems, and globalization.
