The 4th JILPT Tokyo Comparative Labor Policy Seminar 2020 (Online)
The Changing World of Work in Digital Age -New Forms of Work and the Role of Labor Policy

As labor problems become more universal with the advance of globalization in recent years, there is a growing need for international comparative research in the planning and formulation of labor policy. With this in mind, JILPT started to hold the “JILPT Tokyo Comparative Labor Policy Seminar” from March 2017 annually to provide an opportunity for researchers from major countries and regions, particularly Asia, to come together and engage in a comparative examination of their shared challenges. Through these seminars, we aim to build a network among researchers, research institutions, and people in the labor field.
