Implementation Report

The 11th Policy Research Exchange Conference Preliminary Briefing Session

On Saturday, October 24, prior to the 11th Policy Research Exchange Conference from Kyoto (held on December 6), a preliminary briefing session was held by the student executive committee members. At the briefing session, in addition to an overview of the competition, including the schedule and judging criteria, there was time to divide into groups to introduce their own research, which gave 80 participants an opportunity to take an interest in each other's themes.


The 11th Policy Research Exchange Conference

 This year, the 11th year, as in the previous year, special themes related to "arts and culture" and "social welfare" were set, and students and graduate students from various universities as well as universities and graduate schools with policy faculties were encouraged to participate, and a total of 79 groups (65 oral presentations and 14 panel presentations) gave presentations.
In the 10 thematic breakout sessions and panel presentation venues, research presentations in various fields related to urban policy were presented, followed by an enthusiastic question-and-answer session by the judges and audience. In addition, this year, we introduced a "student evaluation system" in which presenters not only make their own presentations, but also listen to other presentations and exchange opinions and evaluations, which increased opportunities for presenters to gain stimulation and learning through their opinions, and further deepened their research.
In addition, in response to the passage of a bill to lower the voting age to 18 years old in June this year, nine incumbent Kyoto City Councilors were invited to hold a roundtable discussion to think about "political participation of young people." In the roundtable discussion, 48 student participants discussed their ideal political image with the legislators based on their image of politics and questions to the legislators, and as a result, many participants commented that their image of politics and politicians changed and that they felt that politics and elections were familiar to them.
At the award ceremony, the results of the judging were reviewed and the Research Encouragement Award was given to excellent presentations, and the venue was crowded with overflowing participants, suggesting that the competition was a place for students to learn and create a sense of fulfillment.
