In today's modern world, which is a composition of these elements, globalization is progressing, and an understanding of these elements is essential for global human resources. In this lecture, we will focus on the Malay Peninsula and the Middle East as a field of multicultural integration, and deepen our understanding of various phenomena such as politics, economics, culture, and daily life from multiple perspectives. In addition, through collaboration between domestic and international students, we aim to form a basis for students to relativize cross-cultural phenomena and to get along well with different cultures.
