Japanstudien 19

Familienangelegenheiten (Family affairs)


Volume 19 of the DIJ’s annual journal Japanstudien is concerned with a topic that is directly related to the institute’s present focus of research: the Japanese family. There is no doubt that Japan’s current demographic trends, which are characterised by dropping birth rates and an ageing population, are in large part effected by the rapidly changing ways of how people live together. The contributions in this volume provide a variety of insights into Japanese family affairs and their demographic implications.
