(information) About the earthquake to our concerned colleagues

We are very grateful to our colleagues from around the world for their concern about the earthquake.  Although Fukuoka City, where most of Kyushu University’s campuses reside, is only 100 km from Kumamoto city, the epicenter, we have been spared of major damage.  A few old windows broken and a few tiles falling off walls were levels of damages.  We were very concerned about the Beppu city branch of the university hospital but damage there was minor also. Everything is functioning as normal in all campuses.

The university has been busy coordinating the network of national university hospitals in Kyushu and Yamaguchi prefecture to send supplies and staff to the Kumamoto University hospital.  We also have researchers from engineering and sciences involved in information gathering and analysis.

Abstract

Over the last two years there has been a selective narrowing of Russia’s partnership with the European Union, while at the same time there has taken place a certain dematerialisation of Russia’s inter-state borders within post-Soviet space and in the Asia-Pacific region. In the latter cases, this reconfiguration of state borders is being rationalised through two distinct vectors: one which privileges modernisation and adheres to the tenets of neo-liberal economics; the other, a return to geopolitics and ideas of “civilisational spaces” with supposedly shared values, ideals, and political and economic interests. This paper suggests that through the lens of the border we can gain new insights into the processes driving this integrationist agenda, which is related to the politics of identity; the nature of the political regime; national development strategies; and the articulation of “national” interests. It suggests that at the same time as there are certain complementarities between the processes driving the dematerialisation of Russia’s Eurasian borders, there are also emerging tensions, which are remaking these borders in unintended and often contradictory ways.
