Consequence of hometown regiment: the Japanese case during the WWII
War sometimes made a huge gender imbalance in certain cohort and in certain areas. While it is a common idea that such gender imbalance may have moved the trajectory of economic development, the controversy is still inconclusive, because the market economy has a strong restoring force. We intend to contribute to this literature by introducing the Japanese experience during the second world war. Japan lost more than 2 million soldiers between 1938 and 1945.

(At this time, this conference will be a hybrid event featuring both in-person and remote presentations)
The Oxford University Strategic Studies Group is convening a seminar with Professor Iftikhar Malik, Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and Professor of International History at Bath Spa University. Professor Malik's research interests lie in the political and intellectual history of Islam. His most recently authored books include The Silk Road and Beyond: Narratives of a Muslim Historian (OUP, 2020) and Pashtun Identity and Geopolitics of Southwest Asia: Pakistan and Afghanistan since 9/11 (Anthem, 2016).
India’s controversial Citizenship Amendment Act of December 2019, which offers amnesty to non-Muslim religious minorities from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, was announced by the federal government ostensibly to protect religious minorities fleeing persecution from these three Muslim-majority countries. This law highlights a political climate where forms of nationalism are terrifyingly resurging and state borders are being redefined and contested the world over.
