    The Eisaku Sato Essay Contest is a bilingual (English and Japanese) international competition established in memory of the late Eisaku Sato, former Prime Minister of Japan, with the monetary award that he received with his 1974 Nobel Peace Prize.

    The theme of the 2013 essay contest was “Many people expect the United Nations to play a major role in world peace and in protecting the safety and welfare of the people worldwide. Express your views on whether the United Nations is sufficiently responding to the expectations. I ‘no’, discuss the causes and constraints for this failure; if ‘yes’, discuss some recent success cases.”

    Eighty-five essays were submitted by the 31 March 2013 deadline: 24 in Japanese and 61 in English.

    Prizes will be presented to the winners of the 29th Eisaku Sato Essay Contest at this event.
