ABSTRACT

This study aimed at analyzing the institutionalization process of a home-sharing business in Japan by applying political systems-policy network theory. The literature review covered the concepts of home-sharing business, political systems-policy network theory, and the related precedent studies. For the research design, a conceptual model was proposed. Case study method was employed and the time scope of the research was established from June 2015 to June 2017. The major findings of this study revealed that the institutionalization process of the home-sharing business in Japan was affected by the political environment, the technological environment, the international environment, and the tourism market environment. The policy community model was formed by diverse official and non-official political actors. Finally, for policy output, an independent law was enacted. Based on these findings, theoretical implications for the research of the institutionalization process of the home-sharing business and the importance of forming a policy network in the institutionalization process are discussed.
