Abstract

Like other major post-industrial democracies around the turn of the 21st century, Japan is undergoing a ‘gradual transformation’ in socio-economic relations. Unlike the ‘great transformation’ that engendered the welfare state in the mid-20th century, the current shift is back towards more market-driven governance. Yet entrenched legal and social norms and social institutions mitigate the pace and influence the direction of this shift.
