The “Missing Link”: The Japanese Occupation Era (1942-1945)

This website is intended to disseminate information about activities and research results related to “The ‘Missing Link’ in Modern Indonesian History: Japanese Occupation Era Bridging Pre- and Post War Indonesia”  (Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (B) No. 16H05679) , “The ‘Missing Link’ in Modern Indonesian History: Post-war society seen through Japanese military administration” (Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (B) No. 19H01321) and related projects.

Although this research group is Japan-based, we believe that it is important to improve communication with interested parties throughout the world. We hope this website will be a significant step forward in this respect.
