In 1988, the first Nordic Symposium on Japanese and Korean Studies was held at Stockholm University as a rather small gathering of scholars from the humanities and the social sciences, specializing in fields related to Japan and Korea. The second such symposium took place in Copenhagen in 1990, and this time there were 65 participants. At this meeting, it was formally decided to establish the Nordic Association for Japanese and Korean Studies (NAJAKS) as a regional organization under the European Association of Japanese Studies (EAJS), and across the following years NAJAKS would also develop a loose affiliation with the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies (NIAS).
