2016 -- Poverty
Dr. Takehiko Kariya
Dr. Takehiko Kariya is Professor of the Sociology of Japanese Study at the University of Oxford, having taught at the University of Tokyo for two decades. His research focuses on the sociology of education, educational and social policies, and social changes in postwar Japan. With him, UK-JP participants identified the poverty-education link and examined solutions to break the intergenerational chain of deprivation in Japan, in the context of a declining birthrate and an aging population.
