Asia / Germany Japan Programme

The German-Asian Programme was founded in 1995 at the suggestion of the Federal Foreign Office on the occasion of the “Asia-Europe Summit” in Bangkok. For many years, journalists from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the countries of Southeast Asia were supported.

In 2024, IJP will offer a fellowship exclusively for Japan for the second time, reflecting Japan’s strategic importance in the geopolitical shifts and as a host of the Expo 2025. The focus of this programme is on economics, geopolitics, environment /energy / climate politics and new technologies. Applicants are expected to have a strong expertise in at least one of these fields.
