Description:
International Symposium "Fertility and Social Stratification - Germany and Japan in Comparison "
Location:
Tokyo, Center for the Advancementof Working Women (CAWW), Japan
Subject:
This international symposium focuses on Japan??s and Germany??s fertility development and its connection with the countries?? social stratification. Using this dual perspective, the conference aims to improve the comparison of country-specific knowledge, to provide a better understanding of the causes of low fertility in either country and possibly to conceive suggestions for policy making. To provide a comprehensive discussion on the issues at hand, we have organized the conference in the following sections/panels: Social class, social reproduction and fertility; Policy making; Gender; Employment and education; Region; Fathers and work-life balance; Health care.
