Do labour market inequalities erode support for democracy? Experiences and perspectives from France, Germany and Japan
EHESS - Paris, France
6&7 October 2017
This workshop seeks to investigate links between labour market inequalities and falling support for and trust in democracy by bringing together scholars and experts from France, Germany and Japan. The aim of the workshop is two-fold: First, it seeks to establish how labour market inequalities impact politics, political participation and support of democracy in each country. Second, it addresses how different policy and regulatory regimes may contribute to alleviating socioeconomic divides and to enabling strategies to counter political marginalisation, anti-mainstream sentiment and mistrust in democracy overall.
Workshop co-organized by the German Institute for Japanese Studies (DIJ), the Fondation France-Japon de l'EHESS (FFJ) and the Japanisch-Deutsches Zentrum Berlin (JDZB).
