Abriss

The Demographic Challenge. A Handbook about Japan ist die bislang umfangreichste Einzelpublikation aus dem DIJ. Auf rund 1200 Seiten bietet das Handbuch eine kompakte Darstellung des jüngeren Bevölkerungswandels in Japan.

Nach Kapiteln zu den grundlegenden demographischen Entwicklungen werden in vier weiteren Abschnitten die Implikationen für Gesellschaft, Kultur, Politik und Wirtschaft Japans aufgegriffen. Im Einzelnen untersucht werden zum Beispiel Veränderungen in der Struktur von Familie und Partnerschaft, die Themen Medien, Erziehung und Tourismus im Alter, ebenso wie Reformen in der Familien- und der Zuwanderungspolitik oder auch Neuregulierungen von Arbeitsmarkt und Rentensystem.
