Balancing Between Legality and Illegality: Russian Import of Japanese Used Cars and Unauthorized Export of Russian Marine Bioresources to Japan

Abstract: This article focuses on two main issues: the ability of informal cross-border entrepreneurs to avoid restrictions imposed by a government, and governmental capacity to make these restrictions work efficiently in the long term. Two kinds of informal trade activities between Russia and Japan—import of used cars and trafficking of marine bioresources—are taken as case studies. I argue that in both cases informal cross-border traders have tried to exploit cross-border differences to their benefit, balancing betwe… Show more

“…Data on the export of used cars from Japan published by the United Nations (UNECE, 2017) for 2014-2015, in turn, show that the largest importers of cars from this country were New Zealand (about 220 000), the United Arab Emirates and Burma (about 190 000) and Russia (about 165 000 cars in two years). The text by Golunov (2018) shows, however, that the import of used cars from Japan to Russia reached its highest level (about 500 000 cars) in 2008, and in the period 2009-2017 did not exceed 200 000 per year. Of course, the numbers cited do not exhaust the full spectrum of used car imports in the world, but they show the scale and order of magnitude of this phenomenon in the countries where it is most common.…”

“…In 2014–2015, New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates and Russia imported 220,000, 190,000 and 165,000 cars from Japan per year, respectively (Kołsut, 2020). In the record year of 2008, Russian imports amounted to some 500,000 vehicles, but even by 2009–2017, imports did not exceed 200,000 per year (Golunov, 2018). On the other hand, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP, 2020) report shows that, outside the EU, the largest secondhand car importers in 2018 included Serbia (approximately 260,000 cars), Nigeria (237,000), the United Arab Emirates (230,000), Ukraine (175,000) and Libya (161,000).…”

“…Przesłanki podejmowania takich decyzji są bardzo różne. Wśród nich można wymienić: wsparcie sprzedaży nowych aut i utrzymanie miejsc pracy w krajowym sektorze motoryzacyjnym (Davis i Kahn, 2010), ochronę środowiska i ograniczenie emisji zanieczyszczeń pochodzących ze starych samochodów (Root, 2006) oraz podniesienie poziomu bezpieczeństwa drogowego (Golunov, 2018). Na te okoliczności nakładają się jednak dość często zobowiązania wynikające z umów międzynarodowych oraz funkcjonowania unii celnych.…”
