Abstract: Explores trends in the socio-economic climate in Japan during the 1980s and 1990s and examines the implications for work of changing family needs. Considers the impact on the family of working conditions and family support measures and investigates why work-family support programmes are not being effectively utilized. Makes recommendations for the introduction of work-family policies.
