CPRC Reports

 The research in the CPRC, what is called the "collaborative research", is done in a team of the JFTC staffs and the visiting researchers(economists and jurists). The reasons why we take the style of the collaborative research are threefold. First, it would improve the economic analysis ability of the staff in the JFTC who is involved in the research. Second, it would offer the visiting researchers the opportunity to feel the real policy needs. Third, it would facilitate to merge the perspectives of economics and law.

 The issues related to the researches are discussed in theworkshops on the process. When it is done, the report would be posted here.

 The contents of each report are based on a view of each author in charge and do not mean the view of the CPRC/JFTC.
