Abstract: Since the breakdown of the economic bubble in the early 1990s, the Japanese economy performed poorly being affected by deflation, falling equity market, a low growth rate and a huge budget deficit. Moreover, in the same period there have been several corporate scandals which put in the spotlight the corporate governance which was identified as one of the causes of the problems. As result, the corporate governance has become a major reform issue. Lack of transparency is a chronic problem of Japanese corporate governance which again came to the surface after the recent Olympus scandal. In December 2011 the Ministry of Justice prepared the Interim Proposal on the Revision of the Company Act which is now under discussion.
In Japan, a common opinion is that there are a lot of reforms but not much change. Legal reforms have had a limited impact so far and have not substantially changed existing business practices. The extent and effect of these reforms seems to be designed in a way to adjust the existing model in order to preserve it rather than to subject it to a substantial change.
Presently there are two conflicting views on further direction of legal reforms. The business elite supports the traditional way of doing things, while a reform-minded groups argue for a better protection of shareholders. This conflict exists also with the government and is the main cause of slow pace of reforms.

In Japan there is a broad agreement on the need of changes, but there is a disagreement about the scope and goals of the changes. In my presentation I will try to answer a number of related questions, such as: What is the nature and the scope of changes? What is the impact of recent reforms on corporate governance? Will or should Japan converge on the American model? How can be reconciled reforms focusing on protection of shareholders in a dominantly stakeholder model: is greater protection of shareholders given at expense of some stakeholders, particularly employees? What is the prospect of creating a hybrid model? Various possible scenarios will be examined in order to draw conclusions on the nature, scope and direction of changes of the Japanese corporate governance in the coming years.

My presentation will firstly provide a short overview of law reforms affecting corporate governance. Potential for greater convergence of Japanese corporate governance in the future will be explored by examining barriers to convergence, as well as the factors that may contribute to it. The last part will evaluate various possible alternatives for the corporate governance in Japan in the future.

Publication Type: General Paper Submission
Abstract: New Zealand has the world's highest ratio of radio stations to population numbers. The proliferation of local radio stations, and in particular community radio stations, has enabled a range of opportunities for listener interaction. Illustrated by audio clips from current and past radio output, this presentation will look at the unique nature of Kiwi radio and its relationship with the listener. Aspects of the policy, finance and culture with regard to New Zealand radio broadcasting will be analysed and the paper will pose the question; is this a success story or has Kiwi radio become a victim of its own success?

Abstract: Mentoring supports a personal development relationship where a more experienced or knowledgeable person guides or supports a less experienced or knowledgeable person. Group mentoring presents opportunities to address some of the shortcomings of one-to-one mentoring structures. Many-to-many group mentoring differs from traditional one-to-one models yet it provides unique benefits and challenges. Positive youth development, a strengths-based view of developmental potential where resources are cultivated as assets to be retained throughout development, can support young people’s journey to adulthood. Mentoring has potential to facilitate youth development but consequences for development of youth assets in a school-based, group mentoring setting commonly used by community development agencies are unknown. Operationalized positive youth development provides a structural approach to appraise mentoring experiences. To determine youth mentors’ perceptions of the impact of a school-based, many-to-many group mentoring engagement on urban Australian secondary students’ developmental assets. Benefits of mentoring models and types, age- and culture-matching of mentors-mentees, and the role of relationships are discussed. Face-to-face interviews hermeneutically inform an idiographic qualitative study epistemologically informed by IPA. Interviews with mentors and other program stakeholders of an existing school-based mentoring program contribute data alongside observational notes. It is anticipated that mentors will perceive contextual, structural and interpersonal impacts on mentees’ development as viewed through a positive youth development framework. It is expected that findings will be useful for engaging youth in positive development programs, to contribute to the body of knowledge about general youth development and provide additional evidence to support alternative models of mentoring in the community.

Key words: mentoring, group mentoring, positive youth development, young people, developmental assets.
