Next, Professor Minato NAKAZAWA (Graduate School of Health Sciences, Kobe University) gave a lecture entitled "Why does the East Asian fertility decline more rapidly than European?". Finally, Associate Professor Eva HANADA (Centre for EU Academic Collaboration, Institute for Promoting International Partnerships, Kobe University) delivered a lecture entitled "EU: Peace, Prosperity and EU's Place in Today's World".
Prior to the symposium students had attended EU-related lecture given by the School Principal, Mr. TSUJIMOTO. Thanks to such preparations and the school's constant emphasis on English education, students actively listened to the lectures and raised many relevant questions in English.
