I. Topics and Contribution to the Global COE Program Ars Vivendi (Written by ABE Akira)

1. Topics, Objectives and Impacts
 Following the previous academic year, this study group’s purpose is to examine the events of "care" / theories over its value / experimental research on it. Together with deepening academic research on "care" according to the members’ interests, we attempt to conduct its comprehensive / fundamental examinations by sharing and discussing these questions frequently. In this academic year, one of the central themes of our research should be reconsideration of "care" (socialization, ethics and possible practices in the field).

2. Contribution to the Global COE Program Ars Vivendi
 It is obvious to see our previous contributions in terms of quality and quantity of research. However, there are some points to be reflected. Firstly, there were a few research outcomes achieved by graduate students. Secondary, our contribution to "accumulation and investigation" was not enough. In this academic year, therefore, we will contribute to Ars Vivendi by reversing these reflections. A part of our outcomes will be a publication of "Reconsidering Care (tentative) ," a report issued by the Research Center for Ars Vivendi (edited by ABE, HOTTA and other members of the Graduate School of Core Ethics and Frontier Sciences). This time, a peer review system (peer reviewing by editors and external referees) will be introduced for the first time in order to improve the quality of the articles of the report.

II. Research Plan, Method and Publication of Research Products

 Our main activities will be presention of individual research reports and their consecutive group examinations / discussions upon the reports. These outcomes will be published as presentations at academic societies and publication of articles. In addition, we will publish the Report issued by the Research Center for Ars Vivendiand which also includes an event of discussion with researchers who currently develop interesting arguments on care. It has been already decided that our members will have 10 presentations at the Japan Welfare Sociology Association in June. ABE and HOTTA (PDs) will promote and support this project actively and responsively.
