Japan Association for Social Policy Studies (JASPS) Conference June 3-4 2017, Tokyo

JASPS is one of the oldest academic associations in Japan in the areas of labor/industrial relations and social policy studies, and started exchanges of scholars with ESPAnet from 2013. In 2015 there were two exchange sessions of JASPS-ESPAnet, and four papers by ESPAnet members were presented.

JASPS-ESPAnet exchange sessions are planned for the JASPS 2017 spring conference. In these sessions (planned to be held on June 4), all papers will be presented and discussed in English, and a relatively small numbers of presenters (both from ESPAnet and JASPS) will exchange opinions and comments based on presented papers.
