Mini-Conference on Equality among Children and Families: Evidence from China, Korea, Japan, and the World


January 12, 2018


In this follow-up conference of the similar conference held last year, we discussed research agenda for investigating the state of inequality of family education and well-being among children in East Asian countries using household panel data. The conference included the invited lecture by Professor Hyunjoon Park of University of Pennsylvania about the time-use of Korean children. Six research papers using Chinese and Japanese panel data were also presented, followed by the discussions by the participants and floor. The conference helped us advance further comparative studies of East Asian countries about these research topics.
