アジア政治について、政治学者の国際情報発信強化は今ほど強く求められているものはない。現在、世界の中でアジア地域は、人口学的にも経済的にも突出している。しかし、アジアの政治についての理解を世界中で高める重要性にもかかわらず、日本ではその研究水準が高いわりに、実効的な国際情報発信を行われることが非常に少ない。本研究の目的は、日本に...

日本学術振興会: 科学研究費補助金
Project Year: 2003 - 2004    Investigator(s): 猪口 孝
ガバナンスの理論的実証的研究は国家統治の正当性と実効性という伝統的な要件のほかに、公開性と説明責任制を前面に押し出す。本研究では両方を考察の対象とした。正当性については政治制度に対する信頼に焦点を当てて分析した。政治制度が市民の信頼を得れば正当性ありとする考え方と逆に政治制度にむしろ一定の距離をおき、批判的な目を向けるのが通常なりとする考え方がある。前者の考えでは政治制度信頼が高ければ民主主義が根付いているとする。後者の考えでは政治制度信頼が低いからといって民主主義が根付いていないと言うの...

本研究は、従来必ずしも十分に研究されてこなかった東アジア諸国の政治と国際関係の理論的・実証的研究を共同で進め、新たな知見・洞察を得、ひいては、日本の発展モデルの意味について再考することであった。今までの東アジアの政治研究は、地域研究者の研究分野であって、他の諸国との比較や理論的枠組みの応用などには、なじまなかった嫌いがある。すべての事象が、その国や文化の特殊性によって説明されるものではなく、より普遍的に理解される枠組みや概念を用いていこうというのが目的であった。台湾・中国・ベトナム・北朝鮮...
