Simulated Budget Screening by Graduate Students and Undergraduate Students

2012-12-13 (Thu) 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Japan's first Simulated Budget Screening by Graduate Students was held at Osaka University last year. This year, undergraduate students will also participate in the Simulated Budget Screening.
Thanks to cooperation from the secretariat of the Government Revitalization Unit and leadership from rising financial scholars as well as graduate students in Professor Akai's International Public Policy seminar course, this first publicly simulated screening by students will be held on Thursday, December 13.
This is a valuable opportunity for OU students and general citizens to think about the use of tax money and the role of administration.
Please join us in taking a look at the items one by one and considering how best to structure the budget!
Date & Time: Thursday, December 13, 2012, 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Venue: Conference Room, 6th floor, Osaka School of International Public Policy, Osaka University
Members of the screening team

  • TAKEMOTO Toru, Associate professor, Tezukayama University
  • KUWAHARA Mika, Associate professor, Fukui Prefectural University
  • SUGAWARA Kota, Associate professor, Kyoto Sangyo University
  • Students in Professor Nobuo AKAI's seminar course, School of Law, Osaka School of International Public Policy (OSIPP)
  • Staff members of the Government Revitalization Unit, Cabinet Office

There is no charge for attending this event.

This publicly simulated budget screening will be conducted in order to assist graduate students in becoming cognizant of national projects that underwent such screening and stimulate their thinking about the administrative role of government. This simulated screening will deal with the process of governmental budget screenings in the past as an instructional technique -- it will not deal with topics such as which projects should have been canceled but were not.
