Mr. Schu Sugawara "is a Japanese representative to Worldview Rights, an Oslo-based NGO that promotes democratization through the media. A journalist by training, he has served as president of the Asia Press Club, a Tokyo-based news service focusing on free media, human rights, and Asia. During his fellowship, he examined U.S. democracy-assistance programs for insights and lessons learned that may be applicable to Japan. The results of his research will be published in a book aimed at stimulating discussion among Japanese politicians, journalists, and scholars about their country's role in democracy promotion."
