Labor Welfare Policy

 
Labor Welfare Policy
 
 

Labor policy and welfare policy are the subjects of education and research in the Department of Labor Welfare and Policy. The main content of labor policy is the government's policies that affect labor-management relations, working conditions, employment and labor markets. However, the fields of employment policy, personnel policy, and labor condition formation within micro-companies are also important parts of labor policy research.


Welfare policy covers all welfare policy fields related to workers. In other words, welfare policies in the field of production that directly affect workers' working conditions, such as industrial accident insurance, employment insurance, employment policy, education and training policy, are the subject of priority interest in the departments of Labor Welfare Policy.


In addition, welfare policies that promote workers' welfare outside the production area are not neglected. In particular, systems belonging to the five major social insurance systems, such as pension system, health insurance system, and long-term care insurance, and social assistance system, are the main interests of the Department of Labor Welfare Policy.


The characteristic of this major is the integrated analysis and research of labor policy and welfare policy. Unlike other graduate schools, the Department of Labor Welfare Policy at the Graduate School of Labor Studies places importance on the relationship between welfare policy and labor policy. Therefore, it is an important task for this graduate school to analyze the relationship between welfare policy and labor policy and to study the desirable combination method. In addition, the characteristic of this graduate school is to approach research from a comprehensive perspective. In the study of labor policy and welfare policy, this graduate school intends to apply the perspectives of all related disciplines such as sociology, politics, and economics in an integrated manner.


As the Department of Labor Welfare Policy is formed in an interdisciplinary connection, it provides a wide range of opportunities to access other majors of the Graduate School of Labor and opens its own subjects of labor policy and welfare policy.
