International Cooperation
Organizing the Foreign Scholar Lecture Series and International Workshops
The Foreign Scholar Lecture Series and International Workshops are organized to invite internationally renowned researchers in the fields of population and social security. These seminars and workshops are held in the IPSS conference room and are open to the public. From 2012 to 2014, seminars on themes such as social expenditure and social policy, population and development, longevity and health transition were organized, and international workshops on global ageing, child poverty and other issues were organized.
Promoting International Research Cooperation
We are promoting international research cooperation with research institutions around the world, including the Korean Institute for Health and Social Affairs (KIHASA) with whom we concluded a joint announcement of cooperation, as well as the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), The World Bank (WB), The Asian Development Bank (ADB), UNICEF Innocenti Office of Research, Institut National d’Etudes Demographiques (INED), Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CA SS), and the Center for Demography and Human Ecology of Russia. Our researchers also participate and present their work in the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP), and other international academic associations including regional population associations in the United States, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Foundation for International Studies on Social Security (FISS).
Receiving Visitors from Overseas
We receive delegations and study tour groups from around the world and outline the current situation of population and social security in Japan for them. In the period from 2012 to 2014, we have received visitors and delegates from many countries and regions, such as members of the provincial parliament, Kwanzulu-Natal Legislature, South Africa, a delegation from the state government of Hidalgo, Mexico, the North East Asia Overseas Study Tour Group, Royal College of Defence Studies, UK, the JICA delegation on aging issues from China, members of Central Provident Fund Board, Singapore, and members from National Health Insurance Service, Korea.
Collaborating through International Organizations on Global Issues
We are participating in the Commission on Population and Development, United Nations, held annually at the UN headquarters in New York, and the Asian and Pacific Population Conference held every 10 years (the 6th meeting was held in Bangkok in September 2013), as well as in expert group meetings of the OECD as Japanese delegates, and are continuously engaged in tackling global population issues, and the construction of social security systems around the world.
