Maintaining diversity in policy-oriented research (第88回日本社会学会大会 2015-09 報告申込、審査中)

Maintaining diversity in policy-oriented research: alternatives of work-life balance measures for gender equality in Japan

TANAKA Sigeto (田中 重人) Tohoku University

Abstract prepared for a poster session in the 88th Annual Meeting, Japan Sociological Society (2015-09-19..20 Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan)

This proposal is under review by the Japan Sociological Society. Result will be opened by late August.

(Below is a draft before submission, as by 2015-05-18. See for the final version.)

1. Problem

Policy-oriented research often suffers from overconcentration on a narrow topic. For instance, research on gender equality in Japan has concentrated on the effects of work-life balance (WLB) measures on continuous regular employment of women in their childrearing stage. Although we have already compiled negative evidence indicating that there has been no increase in women's continuous regular employment despite expanding WLB measures [1], we are still spending a large amount of resources on WLB research. Overconcentration reduces diversity and the capacity of social sciences to make appropriate contributions to public issues.

This problem partly arises from a defect in the PDCA (plan-do-check-act) cycle model, which policy-oriented research is always based on implicitly. It offers no motivation to break the cycle. The cycle is merely a repetition of fine-tuning in a production process to achieve the given goal, as is naturally expected given that the root of PDCA was a product management system used in private companies [2]. There will thus be no chance to set another goal, to discover a new research topic, or to appeal to the public to overwrite the fundamental philosophy behind the policy.

2. Solution

I put forward a proposal for a new framework for policy-oriented research: "ideology-institution dynamics with causal modeling" (IIDCM), a framework upper-compatible with the PDCA cycle. Like the PDCA cycle, IIDCM assumes a cycle between consideration of ideology (what we perceive and think about the real world) and observation of social phenomena in the real world. In addition, IIDCM offers a schema to analyze ideology as a system of interdependent beliefs about how the real society is, how the ideal society should be, and what we should do according to the social status we occupy.

What will we witness when we seriously try to boost fertility?: Normative constraints against universal child benefits

出生力増大に本気で取り組んだら何が起きるのか?: 普遍的児童給付の規範的制約

TANAKA Sigeto (田中 重人)

Abstract prepared for a presentation in the 25th Annual Meeting, Japan Society of Family Sociology (2015-09-05..06 Otemon Gakuin University, Osaka, Japan)

(Below is a draft before submission, as by 2015-06-04. See for the final version.)


Many contemporary societies suffer from low fertility due to two factors: the desired number of children has declined and converged at a low level between 2 and 3 [1: 201-207]; and most people cannot have the desired number of children [2: 12-19]. If we take these as a serious problem and try to raise fertility up to the replacement level, what amount of resources should we mobilize? And what will be obstacles against such policies? This paper discusses these issues focusing on economic aspects of work-life balance (WLB) and universal child benefit (UCB) policies in Japan.
