ABSTRACT

In recent years, several articles which constitute the debate called 'Takegawa-Tada debate' over a methodology of the comparative study on East Asian welfare states have been published. The debate has an implication as a contact point of some approaches of the study on welfare state in Japan. This paper, firstly, investigates the genealogy of the studies on welfare state in Japan, and examines the content of two approaches called `stage-oriented approach` and `type-oriented approach`. Secondly, the paper explores the study on East Asian welfare states as a contact point of the two approaches and clarifies the position of 'Takegawa-Tada debate'. Through the above analysis, the purpose of this paper is to explore a methodological approach for the comparative study on East Asian welfare states.
