Economic Analysis and Policy, 2018, vol. 58, issue C, 70-87

Abstract: Students’ career paths in Japan have greatly changed due to macroeconomic factors and the fact that young people are increasingly opting not to participate in the labor force. The need to provide education fostering motivation and qualities required for students’ future social and vocational independence has emerged. The government-promoted career education policies have become established as one of the pillars of youth employment policy.
