Compact city policies have been adopted by many local governments in Japan. And yet, despite a number of studies showing the merits of the compact city, these policies continue to be criticized within society.
In order to correctly respond to these criticisms, Yasushi Asami, professor of urban engineering at the University of Tokyo, will explain why benefit allocation, cost imposition, compensatory measures, and the consensus-building process should be improved.
This event has been organized at the Maison franco-japonaise (Nichifutsu Kaikan) since
2004. It offers a presentation followed by a discussion dedicated to a specific issue of the time and aims to bring about a better understanding of Japanese economy and society.
