Special Issue: Economic Analysis of Law, Politics, and Regions
As global economy develops, institutional conflicts and policy conflicts among regions (Including nations) have been occurring. In particular, to prevent the conflicts due to the differences of institutions, including legal systems and political systems, many domestic reform and several policy coordination among regions have done. In this special issue, considering these situations, we call for papers on economic analysis on law, politics, and regions. We welcome both theoretical analysis and empirical one. As for legal realms, there are international debates on issues of antitrust law, corporate law, environmental law, international law etc. Legal reform is always discussing. In many countries, the political and judicial systems are also different. Japan is a parliamentary system with prime minister. South Korea is a directly-elected president. China and Vietnam are one-party dictatorship. These differences may influence not only the political performance but also economic performance. This may also cause intra-regional conflict or inter-regional conflict. Therefore to investigate the degree of political centralization and regulation in Asian-Pacific regions from the point of regional development will is significantly useful.
