*Japan Today: Challenges and Responses to Globalization* ** *Professor Toshiya Ozaki*, Rikkyo University *Professor Takehiko Kariya*, University of Oxford *Professor Anthony P. D’Costa*, Asia Research Centre, CBS The economic rise of Japan is legendary. Since the Meiji Restoration of 1868 followed by the post World War II social pact and the role of the developmental state in a corporatist setting, Japan harnessed its traditional institutions and adapted them successfully for modern business and society. However, the closed nature of Japanese systems, whether among businesses (the *keiretsu*), society (restricted immigration), or politics (dominance of a single party), while they worked well in an era of national development and limited internationalization, became barriers to Japan’s adjustment to a world that had changed drastically. Professors Toshiya Ozaki (Rikkyo University), Takehiko Kariya (University of Oxford), and Anthony P. D’Costa (Asia Research Centre, CBS) offer a multi-faceted discussion of the institutional challenges faced by Japan today and suggest some policy options for regaining a more dynamic and competitive Japan. * * *PROGRAM* * * *9:00-9:10* Welcome by Professor Anthony P.
