La longévité au Japon - Perspectives

Avec plus de 90 000 centenaires, le Japon est actuellement le pays où le taux de personnes de plus de cent ans est le plus élevé. Pourtant, la proportion de personnes qui disent vouloir vivre jusqu’à 100 ans est moins grande au Japon que dans d’autres pays. Comment expliquer ce phénomène ? Selon Yasuyuki GONDO, professeur du département des sciences humaines de l’Université d’Osaka, ne pas lutter contre le vieillissement pourrait être, paradoxalement, le moyen de vivre une vieillesse heureuse. Il débattra de ce sujet avec Jean-Marie ROBINE, directeur de recherche émérite à l’Inserm et à l’EPHE, rattaché au laboratoire MMDN de l'Université de Montpellier.

1st Expert Group meeting on “economics of ageing”

FFJ/Banque de France lab

This year, the FFJ-Banque de France lab will concentrate its activities on the relationship between demography and economics. Due to the nature of the topic, which is quite broad, it is proposed to narrow it down and focus on the economics of ageing, with two primary directions:

  • Fiscal sustainability and price dynamics in an ageing economy
  • Innovation and human capital in an ageing economy

Besides the regular conferences on June 14 (in Paris) and December 2 (in Tokyo), we decided to launch a Japanese-French expert group to facilitate a knowledge exchange opportunity and promote research coordination that allows the researchers to work collaboratively to produce new knowledge. We provide the opportunity for mid-career and junior researchers to present their research, which allows senior researchers to comment on their works.

For this 1st expert group, we will focus on two presentation about “Population aging and the real interest rate in the last and next 50 years: a tale told by an overlapping generations model” and “Ageing Population and Technology Adoption”.

Disasters and Volunteers in Japan; How does disaster volunteering contribute to the reestablishment of routines for affected people in Japan?

The purpose of this presentation is to clarify how volunteering in disaster revitalization in Japan interacts with disaster victims from an action research perspective. In doing so, we will address the question of how the daily routines of disaster-affected people are re-established. Japan has experienced many natural disasters, including earthquakes. Volunteering for disaster relief has focused on the period from post-disaster relief to the recovery period when the infrastructure of daily life is restored. However, research on the revitalization phase is important, considering the catastrophic impact of disasters on the routines of daily life. Volunteering in disaster revitalization is dependent on the individuality and specificity of the victims and the affected people, making it difficult to determine what should be done. This report will capture the work of volunteers involved in the revitalization process from the perspective of the collaborative production of new needs and the restoration of routine.

From Abenomics to New Capitalism: Tracing the Origins of Economic Policy Ideas in Japan

To explain variations in policy outcomes, scholars in comparative political economy have focused on the institutional composition within Anglo-American and Western European liberal, statist and neo-corporatist regimes. In a recent addition to this literature, new analyses have focused on knowledge regimes as mechanisms through which ideas are produced and transmitted within political regimes. In particular, the role of think tanks and policy experts as mobile carriers of ideas has attracted attention. However, this literature has not taken into account the specific institutional arrangements of (post-)developmental states, where governments play a dominant role in policy-making. Therefore, in this presentation, Sebastian Maslow attempts to contribute to the literature that examines variation in policy outcomes and the role of political expertise by adding the developmental state to the set of political regime types. He will do this by focusing on Japan as a classic representation of the developmental state.

Governments in Japan have become increasingly interested in policy-relevant ideas on how to revitalize the national economy. This focus has created opportunities for policy entrepreneurs in academia and beyond to promote new economic policy programs. In this presentation, Sebastian Maslow focus on two programs, Abe Shinzo's post-2012 “Abenomics” and Kishida Fumio’s “new form of capitalism” introduced in 2021. Specifically, he asks whether advisors outside the formal government and/or ruling party apparatus contributed to the policy ideas that shaped Japanese economic policy. Sebastien Maslow argues that a change of government in Japan created a window of opportunity for policy entrepreneurs, including think tanks, to ideologically influence the development of a new signature economic policy in Japan. Moreover, he shows that think tanks are now playing a more prominent role in Japanese economic policymaking. He argues that this is the result of institutional changes in Japan, particularly since the collapse of the DPJ government in 2009, which highlighted the need for alternative sources of policy ideas to the dominant bureaucracy that provided expertise to LDP governments. In this sense, Sebastian Maslow suggest that Japan’s marketplace of economic policy ideas has become more competitive.

‘Cool Japan’—Concrete Policy or Illusion?

Japanese popular culture, in the form of anime, manga, and other cultural products, has become popular around the world. The Japanese government has made efforts to profit economically from this phenomenon by adopting the term ‘Cool Japan’. Cool Japan ‘policy’, however, has been patchy, disjointed and confusing. In this seminar Nobuko Kawashima will examine the background and emergence of the policy, its stated aims, its implemented programs and its gradual transformation since the early 2000s. This period corresponds with the changing political structure and administrative reform, whereby the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) has come to assume a central role at the Cabinet Office in making cross-departmental policies, of which Cool Japan is one. However, despite the ambition of METI, Cool Japan lacked substance as a policy: clear aims, evidence of needs, concrete programs to address specific needs, and resources needed for implementation; hence, it is better understood as a campaign than as a policy.

What does the future hold for work in the 5.0 society?

IAA+Soc 2024 - Side event

Since 2015, Japan has been proposing a society of the future, the 5.0 society, in which digital technologies (artificial intelligence, for example) will be generalised and applied to solve social problems, in an environment where the real and virtual worlds coexist. In particular, this should lead to a profound transformation in the nature and conditions of work. On the one hand, certain arduous tasks will no longer be carried out by humans; on the other hand, this could lead to massive job losses and the destabilisation of our societies.

What are the risks and opportunities for work in the 5.0 society? How can we limit the former and seize the latter? What can Europe learn from this vision? Speakers from Japan, France and Germany will attempt to answer these questions at this round table.

Comprendre le piéton et son avenir dans l'espace public

FFJ/Movin'On lab

Le piéton peine à trouver sa place dans un espace public qui s’est organisé, depuis des décennies, autour de la centralité de la voiture. Pourtant les choses évoluent et il est temps aujourd’hui de faire évoluer cet espace public pour laisser toute leur place aux mobilités alternatives. Mathieu ALAPETITE (Fondation Jean-Jaurès) viendra nous présenter les grands enseignements de son travail en s’intéressant plus particulièrement à la question des contraintes et empêchements qui pèsent sur le piéton et aux solutions à imaginer pour promouvoir la marche et faciliter la cohabitation des différents modes. Cette présentation entre dans le cadre de la Communauté d'Intérêts Movin'On-FFJ sur les Mobilités Contraintes.
