The 21st Kitakyushu Conference on Asian Women

********** [Finished] **********

1. Date              November 13, 2010 (Sat.)-November 14, 2010 (Sun.)


2. Venue           Kitakyushu Municipal Gender Equality Center MOVE


3. Organizer:  Kitakyushu Forum on Asian Women (KFAW)


4. Theme
   “Child Rearing Environments in the World: Children, Parents and Society”


 Currently, Japan is taking a variety of measures to provide child-rearing assistance amid a declining birthrate. The City of Kitakyushu is also striving to “create a community that is the top supporter of child rearing in Japan.”
The term “child rearing” does not refer simply to a task performed only by mothers or women. Nor is it only a family issue. Moreover, each family with children has its own set of circumstances and composition.
 However, the healthy growth of children is wanted by all. Given this, what kind of systems, society, and environments would be more advantageous to child rearing?
 On the Panel Discussion at the first day of the conference, we will look at “Child Rearing Environments in the World” and compare child-rearing circumstances in Japan and various countries, such as the United States, Korea, and Denmark, in an effort to search for what we can do to help to raise our children in future generations.
 On the second day, KFAW researchers will report their research outcomes.

 *Simultaneous interpretation (Japanese-English) is available.
