Outline 概要

Brightening regional futures
with our Public-Private Partnership framework.
Now certified by the United Nations,  
we will make a broad range of contributions to local administrations in Japan, Asia, and the world. 

The Course of Public-Private Partnership of the Graduate School of Economics at Toyo University is aimed at working adults who study Public Private Partnerships.

Currently, many social issues are accumulating, such as aging populations with low birth rates, population decrease, aging infrastructure, and financial pressure on local governments. PPP is growing as an important policy tool to brighten the future of local regions.
 Since its establishment in 2006, the Course of Public-Private Partnership has been cooperating with domestic and overseas local governments on implementing various projects. Within the Course of Public-Private Partnership there are three courses that bring together a diverse student body of local government personnel as well as those active in construction, real estate, finance, and overseas. Each student learns PPP in a manner that fits their individual needs and develops a stronger understanding.

 In addition to the Course of Public-Private Partnership’s educational activities, the achievements of the Research Center for Public-Private Partnership and the Asia Public-Private Partnership Institute have received high evaluations. In 2015, the PPP education and research activities of Toyo University earned the certification of the United Nations’ Specialist Centre of Excellence on PPPs in Local Governments. Now, the school has become an intellectual hub, providing information on many research results in addition to collecting information on PPP from around the world.

  PPP at Toyo University

Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) are an inclusive concept involving a method for project implementation with roles divided among the government, private industries, and citizens.

There is no legal definition of PPP, as is the case with PFI and designated administrators. Therefore, Toyo University’s Research Center for Public-Private Partnership has consulted with world organizations and created a two-stage definition.

 東洋大学大学院経済学研究科公民連携専攻は、Public(官・公)、Private(民・市民)、Partnership(連携)を学ぶ社会人大学院です。

 少子高齢化、人口減少、インフラの老朽化、自治体財政の逼迫など課題が山積する昨今、PPPは地方自治体の未来を照らす重要な政策ツールとして成長しています。
 公民連携専攻は2006年の開設以来、国内外の自治体と連携してさまざまなプロジェクトを実現させてきました。公民連携専攻内に開設された3つのコースには、自治体職員、建設、不動産、金融分野、海外などで活躍する多彩な学生が集まり、それぞれの目的に合ったPPPを学び、理解を深めています。

 公民連携専攻での教育活動に加え、PPP研究センター、アジアPPP研究所での研究活動の実績が評価され、2015年には本学が実施するPPPの教育研究活動が国連CoE地方政府PPPセンターの認定を受けました。今や世界のPPPの情報が集まって来るとともに、多くの研究成果を発信する知的拠点となっています。

  東洋大学のPPP

 PPP(公民連携/Public-Private Partnership)は、官、民、市民が役割分担をして事業を実施する手法を示す包括的な概念です。

 PFIや指定管理者などのように法律で定義されていないため、東洋大学PPP研究センターでは世界の機関を参考に、2段階に分けて定義しています。
