Title: Is Social Security Reform Really Willing to Deal with Poverty?
Authors: Kaneko, Ju

Abstract: In Japan, the growing issue of poverty has been in the spotlight since 2000. Due to the government’s Social Security Reform, the state of anti-poverty policy, including the public assistance system, has come into question, and new structures (philosophies and systems) for supporting poor and needy persons have started to be introduced. This movement is not unrelated to ideological discussions and trends occurring in social security policy in the West and East Asia. While presenting trends in poverty research and social security policy (specifically, anti-poverty policies) in Japan and abroad, this paper first confirms the kinds of restructuring of social security systems recently taking place in various countries in light of conceptual/ideological discussion and political/economic background. Second, this paper presents and assesses movements in specific social security policies in Japan and abroad, while referencing frameworks for ideological discussion such as basic income theory. Third, the challenges that remain in Japan’s anti-poverty policy are examined based on the above discussion by contrasting them with social security policies abroad, particularly focusing on problems regarding minimum subsistence and income redistribution.
