  1. Hybrid or unique ? The Japanese welfare state between Europe and America.

    Article - En anglais

    In the contemporary welfare state literature, both Japan and Southern Europe are often held to be distinct regimes.

    A comparative examination of the evidence for Japan suggests that this is not true.

    Japan's fusion of key elements of catholic-conservative welfare states (occupational segmentation and familialism) with a liberal, American style dominance of private welfare plans gives the appearance of a hybrid system.

    On balance, there is little to indicate a distinct'Pacific'model.

    Regardless, any attempt at labeling the Japanese welfare state is premature since it has not yet sunk its roots, institutuionally speaking.
