民主党政権の政策意思決定システム -TPP協議への参加決定プロセスを題材に-

Abstract:
 本報告では、自民党から民主党に政権交代したことによって、政策意思決定システムがどのように変化し、いかなる課題に直面したのか、TPP交渉参加に向けた政策意思決定プロセスを題材に、検討するものである。本報告の問題意識は、以下の点にある。(1)貿易自由化における政策意思決定システムが、55年体制下の自民党政権から民主党政権へどのように変容を遂げたのか、(2)首相と内閣を中心とするコア・エグゼクティヴがどのように強化され、それがTPPをめぐる論議にどのように影響を及ぼしたのか、(3)なぜ、菅政権ではTPP交渉入りを言明できず、野田政権ではそれが成せたのかである。本報告では、コア・エグゼクティヴ論を用いて、首相と内閣が保持する「資源」を整理し、政策意思決定システムの変容とその課題について説明を試みる。

An Overview of Healthcare Systems in the World

Abstract:
 Healthcare systems in the world can be first classified by the existence of a Universal Healthcare in a country or not. A Universal Healthcare System is defined as offering access to healthcare services at free or affordable price for all residents in a country, which in these countries is considered as a basic human right. There are a number of different ways by which universal healthcare system is provided in each country. Some countries provide access to healthcare services at free or affordable price only for certain segments of the people living in that country, while others have to pay for healthcare services out of their own pocket. In most of the developing countries, this out of pocket payment is adopted. Comparison is made on % share of health expenditure and military expenditure against GDP in some developing countries.
