"Comparatively Happy" – Objective precarity and perception of social exclusion in Germany and Japan: Discussion of the German and Japanese Questionnaire


Koordination: Carola Hommerich


The aim of this non-public workshop was to discuss the German and Japanese versions of the questionnaire which will be used in our national surveys on objective precarity and subjective perception of social exclusion in both countries. The invited experts gave valuable criticism and comments based on which the questionnaire can be finalized in order to go into field later this year.
