Questions that have to be answered are for example: How does the economic turmoil affect the living conditions of children in Japan and Germany? How do policy-makers in Japan and Germany as well as in other industrialized countries address the problems of children? How have Japan and Germany addressed the needs of families and children in their recent economic stimulus packages? How future-oriented are the steps that have been taken to overcome the economic recession and how much consideration did children’s needs receive within these policies?
