Sasahara Seminar was founded in 2020 by Professor Akira Sasahara. Professor Sasahara specializes in international trade, regional and urban economics, and international macroeconomics. Professor Sasahara received his bachelor’s degree in Business and Commerce from Keio University and received his master’s degree in Economics from Hitotsubashi University. Furthermore, he received his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California, Davis. Professor Sasahara taught at the University of Idaho and is currently an Associate Professor of Economics at Keio University. There is a total of 11 students participating in various activities in Sasahara Seminar. In Sasahara Seminar, we attempt to 1) understand classic and ongoing issues in international economics, (2) earn empirical skills to analyze data to answer important questions in the field, and (3) contribute to further understanding of international economics. Sasahara Seminar plans to participate in the 62nd Mita Festival under the purpose of delivering several ongoing studies in international economics that have been recapitulated under students’ analysis. A total of three papers will be examined and the video recordings corresponding to an individual paper will be delivered simultaneously. Through the materials that will be provided during the festival, Sasahara Seminar desires to deliver various insights of international economics to the participants in order to stimulate interest for further studies.
