The Japanese Attempt at Reinforcing the Policy Management Cycle through Policy Evaluation

The full text article is not available for purchase.

The publisher only permits individual articles to be downloaded by subscribers.

This article describes the introduction of a government‐wide policy evaluation

system that is underway in Japan, exemplified by the policy appraisal‐evaluation

system of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI, the

former Ministry of International Trade and Industry). The initiative in METI was

started in December 1999, preceding the implementation of a government‐wide

system. "Policy evaluation" as a term is not limited, in this context, to ex post evaluation

but includes ex ante assessment and performance measurement as well.

Information as to what extent and how outcome measures are used under the systems

is also provided.
