Project B will analyze the ways in which the economy in Japan is responding to the causes and effects of the accelerating decrease of birth-rate. It will do so by examining the increasing flexibility, diversification and instability of employment, the configuration of paid and unpaid work, and the distribution of money, time and space in people's daily life. Studies will be conducted to compare the Japanese case with those in neighboring Asian economies. Project B's overall objective is to formulate alternative policies regarding birth-rate, family, social welfare and economy from a gender perspective.
