International Conference Report: Regulation Crossing Borders

As part of the "Support Project for Strategic University Collaborations," an international conference entitled "Regulation Crossing Borders," orchestrated by the joint efforts of the EUSI (EU Studies Institute in Tokyo), the ANU (Australian National University) Centre for European Studies, and the Centre for European Studies at St.Antony's College, Oxford University, was held on March 31st.

This conference concerned important contemporary issues which the EU is currently confronting from an interdisciplinary perspective bridging economics, law and politics. Following the opening remarks by Rudie Filon (First Secretary, Head of Press, Public and Cultural Affairs, Delegation of the European Union to Japan), Takafumi Sato, former Commissioner of the Financial Services Agency, gave a keynote speech entitled "Post-Crisis Trends of Financial Re-Regulation."

In the first session in the afternoon, entitled "Financial and Monetary Aspects," three prestigious scholars -- Nobuyuki Kinoshita, the Secretary General of the Securities and Exchange Surveillance Commission, Eiji Ogawa of Hitotsubashi University, and Jennifer Corbett of Australian National University -- presented highly informative and insightful reports.

In the second session, "Law and Political Aspects," three scholars of law and politics -- Dimitar Bechev of Oxford University, Chie Sato of Hitotsubashi University, and Hartmut Mayer of Oxford University -- offered impressive presentations concerning various aspects of "regulation." We are very happy to report that the conference was very well-attended, and that lively discussion followed each presentation.
