Japan Association for Social Policy Studies (JASPS) 134th (2017 Spring) Biannual Conference: Call for Papers

We invite ESPAnet members to present papers at the JASPS 134th Biannual Conference to be held in Tokyo on June 3-4 2017.  The conference will be held at Meisei University in 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.  The JASPS 130th Biannual Conference in June 2015 organized two exchange sessions of JASPS-ESPAnet, and four papers by ESPAnet members were presented.

We are planning to organize JASPS-ESPAnet exchange sessions in the JASPS 2017 spring conference (June 3-4).  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.
