"Bridging Cultures, Opening Minds"
The aim of Pacific Rim Voices (PRV) is to encourage and promote greater understanding of and among the peoples and nations of the Pacific Rim and South Asia.
Pacific Rim Voices pursues this aim through its three principal programs, the Kiriyama Prize, WaterBridgeReview.org, and PaperTigers.org. These programs reach out to a wide audience of readers. PRV’s audience includes not only those already interested in the Pacific Rim and South Asia but all those people, young and old, scholars and non-specialists, fiction and nonfiction readers, individuals and book groups, who want to see good communication increased and the bonds of human community reinforced in the course of the 21st century.
Pacific Rim Voices encouragement of greater understanding fosters empathy and cooperation among and with the peoples of the Pacific Rim and South Asia, attitudes that lead towards harmony and peace. PRV itself has no specific political or religious agenda, nor is it part of any particular political grouping or religious denomination, national or international.
