In recent years, Japan and Germany have been facing very similar challenges, namely aging populations, changing employment structures, and globalization. Both countries are in a number of respects more socially and politically regulated and in this sense more liberal than the Anglo-American economies. This book is an edited collection of papers exploring the demographic challenges for human resource management and labour market policies in Germany and Japan. The volume will concentrate on the type of problems aging poses for human resource management practices and labour market policies, and how public and company policies in both countries deal with these challenges.
