Institute of Economic and Social Research

The Institute of Industrial Economies, the predecessor of the Institute of Economic and Social Research, was originally established as an affiliated organization of the Faculty of Commerce in 1954 to devote to the study of the socio-economic aspects of Kurume and neighboring areas. Since its foundation, the Institute has conducted diverse research.

In 2010, the Institute was reorganized into the Institute of Economic and Social Research, as an affiliated organization of Kurume University. Its research agendas are now broadened to cover theoretical, empirical and political studies in the whole field of social and environmental science.

The principal activities of the Institute are to support faculty members' research, and sponsor a wide-range of research projects on industry and economies, focusing especially on the Chikugo Basin. Research results are to be published quarterly in The Journal of the Society for Studies on Industrial Economies. Findings are to be presented periodically in public lectures.
