Politics in Demographically Hard Times: family policies in East Asia and Southern Europe

Hosted by the Department of Social Policy

Thai Theatre, New Academic Building

Speaker

Dr Margarita Estévez-Abe

Chair

Dr Timo Fleckenstein

This lecture compares the politics of family policies in four extremely low fertility countries—Italy, Japan, Korea and Spain. This unusual quartet of countries provides heuristically useful pairings of similarities and differences, which enable us to explore how previously under-studied factors shape policy trajectories.

Margarita Estevez-Abe is Associate Professor of Political Science in the Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs at Syracuse University. 

Timo Fleckenstein is Associate Professor in the Department of Social Policy, LSE.  

The Department of Social Policy (@LSESocialPolicy) is the longest established in the UK. The Department prides itself in being able to offer teaching based on the highest quality empirical research in the field.
