1. Inose, Yuri. "Trouble Passing the Baton: The Challenge of Maintaining Temples in Japan’s Depopulated Areas" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Asian Studies - Annual Conference, Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Chicago, Illinois, <Not Available>. 2019-09-19 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: At Buddhist temples in depopulated areas—characterized by declining birthrates and an aging population—there is a severe decrease in the number of supporting members. Younger generations have moved from depopulated regions to urban areas due to a lack of higher education institutions and employment opportunities. Until recently, relationships with temples have been passed from generation to generation. However, adherents who move from sparsely populated areas are likely to break the relationship with their family temple. On the other hand, young people who remain in sparsely populated areas tend to be estranged from temples due to busy work schedules and a lack of motivation to join temple activities. As a countermeasure to this situation, some temples have events such as Sunday Schools and other fun events aimed at cultivating relationships with younger generations. And yet, in these depopulated areas, it is expected the population will continue to decrease. Therefore, the effect of these efforts is limited. Consequently, initiatives to continue familial relationships with temples must take into account the specific circumstances of each area. In this presentation based on a survey of temple activities, I examine the current state of measures to protect and uphold temples and pass the teachings onto future generations at Jodo Shinshu temples in Fukui, Hiroshima, and Shiga prefectures. Moreover, I discuss the necessity of considering gender when thinking about issues surrounding the cultivation of future generations at temples

3. Chandler, David. "From Dayton to Brussels: Passing the Baton in Bosnia" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Studies Association, Town & Country Resort and Convention Center, San Diego, California, USA, Mar 22, 2006 <Not Available>. 2019-09-19 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Many commentators suggest that the transition to Bosnian ownership has been held back by the Dayton framework, which created a weak central state and a country divided into two separate entities, the Republika Srpska (RS) and the Muslim-Croat Bosnian Federation (FBiH), with ten cantonal governments, as well as an autonomous region, Brcko. Ten years on, the idea that the post-war transition has been frustrated by a surfeit of Bosnian governing institutions, protected by their Dayton status, could not be further from the truth. Rather, the international powers of administration, under the Office of the High Representative, have been vastly increased, reducing the Bosnian institutions established by Dayton to administrative shells. There has been a transition away from Dayton, but this has been from the ad hoc regulatory controls of the self-selected 'coalition of the willing', the Peace Implementation Council, towards an expanded framework of European Union regulation, covering all aspects of the post-Dayton process. Dayton has proved highly flexible, with external institutions rewriting their mandates and powers. However, despite the transformation in post-Dayton mechanisms, it is still too early to talk of any indications of a shift towards Bosnian 'ownership'.
