ABE BROWN-BAG LUNCH
Social Inequality and Employment Structure in Japan,
the United States and South Korea

Recent years show increasing employment flexibility, such as diffusion of non-regular employment, leading to a further expansion of social inequalities in many countries. In this presentation, Dr. Arita discusses on the issues of disadvantaged non-regular employment, which he claims is under significant influence of institutional conditions in each society. Comparing Japan, the US, and South Korea, he will propose a "new" ewexplanatory framework for formation mechanisms of social inequality with a focus on employment structure.
