Prime Minister of Japan 1976-1978
Founder and Honorary Chairman
From founding the InterAction Council in Vienna in 1983, based on his long-held pacifist and egalitarian philosophy, until his death in 1995, Takeo Fukuda was the guiding force of the Council. He established the first historic dialogue between political and religious leaders in 1987. The Council remains profoundly grateful to him and to the people of Japan.
