Most Papers were paired, and the state and administration of the two countries were compared.
In the conference, participants agreed that 1) both Japan and Germany are deeply affected by the institutionalized policies, but 2) both countries gradually go to other same direction under the strong pressure from internationalization and the interdependence of policies. It is also be noted here that there was argument on the methodological point of view.
