Type of event: 
Conference

Autonomous driving has become a relevant and broadly discussed topic in Japan as well as France and Germany.
However, political and corporate strategies on how to implement autonomous driving, regulatory policies in both national, and, in the cases of Germany and France, EU levels, and attitudes towards autonomous driving as well as the perception of risks and chances in each society might differ to a large extent. The French-German Dialogue on Japan will discuss this topic by bringing together trilateral perspectives, research findings, and hands-on experience by panelists from academia and business.

The first session on "Regulating Autonomous Driving" will focus on corporate strategies and the perspective of automobile manufacturers in regard to regulatory issues and policies concerning the development and implementation of autonomous driving.

The second session on "Autonomous Driving and Society" will compare the reception and acceptance of autonomous driving in all three societies: What attitudes and preferences can be found in the Japanese, French and German public? What chances and risks do citizens perceive in regard to autonomous driving?

The event will be held in English.

Public Policies and Ethnic Entrepreneurs Dealing Used Cars and Car Parts from Japan to the Global Market: Focusing on Pakistani and South Asian Transnational Migrants

Fukuda, T. (2019).  Public Policies and Ethnic Entrepreneurs Dealing Used Cars and Car Parts from Japan to the Global Market: Focusing on Pakistani and South Asian Transnational Migrants. Gerpisa colloquium.

Purpose (the outline of the research questions)
There are many migrant entrepreneurs engaged in used cars and used parts trading business in Japan. South Asians including Pakistani are representative actors in these industries. Their markets spread not only inside Japan but also all over the world. Pakistani used car dealers are famous among African, South American and Oceanian markets.
Why are there many Pakistani and South Asian entrepreneurs in this field? The reason is not simple. The multiple factors overlap, such as historical circumstances, political changes, economic trends, transition of legal systems or development of immigration networks. In this paper, we focus on the influences of the public policies of each country. The goal of this paper is to make it clear how Pakistani and South Asian migrants form their own niche markets and expand transnational trading networks, and, in addition, what roles their ethnic ties have in the formation of transnational communities.

Design (Methodology)
Presenter has engaged in research on Pakistani and South Asian migrant communities since 1998, focusing on entrepreneur networks (mainly used car and used parts dealers) in Japan, the UAE, Pakistan and New Zealand. This presentation is based on sociological research including field-works, interviews, participant observations, and other demographic and trade statistic data. read more
