Research Division of Comparative and World Economics

The historical experiences of the United States, Europe and Japan provide valuable suggestions for developing economies and emerging markets, while the analysis of developing economies and emerging markets in turn helps understand the historical processes of developed countries. From this perspective, this research division carries out empirical and theoretical research combining the approaches of comparative economics, comparative system analysis and comparative economic history; development economics and theories of economic development; theories of emerging markets, theories of economies in transition and regional economic analysis (including Russia and Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America). Its main research themes are historical and empirical research on Japan, before and after industrialization; analysis of economic systems and historical research on economies in transition (countries in contemporary Asia, Africa and Latin America as well as Central and Eastern Europe and Russia); and interdisciplinary research on poverty and underdevelopment.
