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. lire la suite

Mobility and Space Utilization: Regulations Concerning Transportation in Urban Development Plans

NISHIMURA, A. (2019).  Mobility and Space Utilization: Regulations Concerning Transportation in Urban Development Plans. Gerpisa colloquium.

Purpose
This research aims to explore recent trends in transformation of land use and its future prospects based on the analysis on new mobility services and efforts toward sustainable transportation and urban space that have developed against the background of environmental problems. In response to environmental problems, urban policy has aimed to create sustainable urban space and to promote the use of eco-friendly modes of transportation. The development of environmentally friendly technology and the provision of urban services are becoming more diversified. The recent emergence of new mobility services such as car sharing, which is a current trend based on a conscious switch from individual car use to shared car use, also tends to bring on the transformation of urban space (such as unused parking lots) for new uses that may result in more-attractive cities. Based on these trends, this research focused on the transition of urban space utilization in France, which has policies to promote the use of eco-friendly transportation modes and to create sustainable urban environments. This study reviewed recent changes in urban planning systems, included the analysis of selected urban-district projects and the institutional structures that enable the achievement of policy goals, and explored ongoing changes in land use.
