Humans & Machines in Medical Contexts: Case Studies from Japan

Medical instruments and technologies can be used to manipulate the human body, ranging from general devices with extremely low risk to such ones highly invasive to patients. Many technologies and electronic appliance nowadays in use; however, took their roots in the second half of the 19th century and increasingly merged into clinics and hospitals during the following century. At present, there can be observed a thrust of technological progress at high pace in the field of biomedical engineering and medical informatics, which contribute additionally to new configurations in in the human-device interplay in Japan.

In order to explore the issues arising from the clinical practices vis-à-vis applications of the (then new) medical devices”, the workshop casts light on their various aspects. The participants will address features regarding the historical, legal, socio-structural, engineering and bioethical conditions and consequences of the interplay between humans and medical technologies or instruments, respectively health care practices in contemporary Japan.

Towards an Intellectual History of Japan’s 1980s Bubble Culture and Economy

In the popular imagination of contemporary Japan, the so-called ‘Bubble Economy’ of the late 1980s has become a place of nostalgia by itself. In it, the 1980s live on as a spectacular feast with endless excitement and seemingly bottomless resources, while contemporary Japan seems mired in dearth and boredom of the everyday. Of course, things were not quite what they seem, as 1980s Japan was also a deeply neurotic society, beset by anxieties and fears that were shared by many cold-war societies, but in part also entirely local. Thus, studies of the culture of the period either focus on the sense of loss and of nostalgia for vanishing traditions (whatever their claims to authenticity) or on the relentless commodi­fication that went hand in hand with it but seemed strangely disconnected.

The Status of Japanese Career Women in their Professional and Private Life

Not that long ago, the term “Japanese career women” almost had been a contradiction in itself. Times have changed and Japanese women pursuing a career is a much talked about topic in politics (“womenomics”) and the media. But has the situation really changed for career women “on the ground”? What are their opportunities and what are their challenges? To what extent are profes-sional expectations and expectations in their private life contradicting each other? And finally, are contradicting expectations resulting in identity conflicts and what are the strategies to cope with these conflicts?

These are questions to be addressed in the presentations. The presentation by Markus Pudelko is based on more than 70 interviews that he has conducted in Japan over the course of several years.

エネルギー転換 (Energiewende) ― ドイツと日本のエネルギー転換の未来

ドイツ語で“Energiewende”と呼ばれる「エネルギー転換」とは、電力・熱・交通部門での化石燃料や原子力の使用からの脱却と、エネルギー効率を改善しながら自然エネルギーへの移行を図る政策・実践を示しています。

この共催イベントでは、ドイツと日本のエネルギー転換の可能性と挑戦について議論されます。ドイツのシンクタンク、アゴラ・エナギーヴェンデからはディミトリ・ペシア氏、日本の自然エネルギー財団からは大林ミカ氏が登壇します。自然エネルギー財団とアゴラ・エナギーヴェンデは、3月頭に共同レポート『ドイツのエネルギー転換  10 の Q&A -日本への教訓』を公開したばかりです。

本イベントでは、まず、レポートの共同執筆者であるディミトリ・ペシア氏が、ドイツのエネルギー転換の最新事情についてお話します。つづいて、大林ミカ氏が、日本のエネルギー政策に関する話題提供を行います。そして最後に、質疑応答の時間を設けています。なお、イベント後は、軽食をご用意しています。

Are the elderly a cost factor for society or its safety net? A comparison of family regimes and National Transfer Accounts data in Germany and Japan

Various works have argued that ageing societies’ increasing dependency ratios provoke generational conflict over scarce financial resources. In post-industrial economies, younger cohorts face disadvantages in the labour market and regarding the generosity of the welfare state compared to previous generations. However, there has also been the tendency to alleviate these imbalances through informal inter-generational family transfers. Comparing Japan and Germany – two of the fastest aging societies worldwide – this presentation investigates whether and to what extent the family can serve as a bulwark against potential generational conflict.

With regard to demographic and household-financial dynamics and policy responses, the presentation will compare differences in the capacity of families to serve as an inter-generational safety net.

Who pays for whom? Intergenerational Transfers in Japan and Germany

Population ageing tends to increase the share of financially dependent members in a given society, which is why it is often assumed to be a trigger for generational conflict. The data on this question paint an ambivalent picture. On the one hand, in many post-industrial economies, today’s younger birth cohorts are put at a disadvantage in the labour market and also in terms of public sector spending compared to older cohorts. On the other hand, there is a tendency of private transfers inside the family to flow downwards – from old to young. It appears that a potential generational conflict in the public domain (welfare state, labour market) is at least partly balanced in the family domain. To what extent this is the case will be analysed by using data from National Transfer Accounts, an internationally harmonized macro-level database of financial intergenerational transfers.

Speakers:
Naohiro Ogawa is a population economist who specializes in studying the effects of demographic change on economic growth and social security systems.

Gerhard Naegele has been a professor of gerontology at the Technical University of Dortmund, Institute of Gerontology since 1992.

政府債務-ドイツはなぜ財政健全化を重視するのか?

ベルンハルト・シュルテ=ドリュッゲルテ

フランツ・ヴァルデンベルガー
ドイツ日本研究所

ドイツと日本の財政政策には大きな隔たりがあります。ドイツは財政健全化を重視しています。同国にはマーストリヒト条約の安定成長協定で定められた債務上限が課せられている上に、憲法には均衡財政を想定した「債務ブレーキ」条項が規定されています。

一方、日本は今や債務残高の対GDP比でOECDの最上位に位置していますが、財政健全化の政策優先度はそれほど高くありません。
