In this volume, a group of international scholars address issues relating to community wellbeing and the role of politics, law and economics in Europe and Japan in achieving human-centred symbiotic governance. Case-studies and suggestions for reform are presented in the arenas of economy, government administration, management, university governance, health, agriculture, the environment and urban planning.
This book will prove a useful tool to those in business research institutes, members of administrative research institutes, NGO's and non-profit organizaions while also providing students of business, Asian studies, politics and law with an insight into possible areas of reform.
