Nippon Foundation
"100 livres pour comprendre le Japon d’aujourd’hui"

Le programme «Read Japan» de la Fondation Nippon parraine un projet annuel de Dons d’ouvrages offrant 100 livres à des bibliothèques situées en dehors du Japon. L’objectif de cette initiative est «d’aider les lecteurs non-japonais à mieux comprendre le Japon contemporain». En 2012, c’est la Bibliothèque de l’Université de Chypre qui a été sélectionnée pour recevoir le don de livres "100 Books for Understanding Contemporary Japan" (100 livres pour comprendre le Japon d’aujourd’hui).

Le don, qui a déjà été intégré aux fonds de la bibliothèque, couvre les sujets suivants : Politique/Relations internationales, Économie/Affaires, Société/Culture, Littérature/Arts, Histoire.

La Nippon Foundation a été créée en 1962 comme organisation philanthropique à but non lucratif. Avec un vingtaine d’organisations partenaires au Japon et dans le monde, elle aide au financement et soutient les initiatives locales de développement visant à réaliser une société mondiale plus prospère et pacifique.
