International Symposium: "Declining birthrate and aging population in Germany and Japan"

The demographic change in Japan and Germany has become a serious challenge for the societies of both countries: Child poverty, the aging of the population and a shrinking labor force weigh heavily on the health and social incurance systems of both nations. On this Symposium we discussed how a country facing financial hardships can stabilize social security.
