私は、先進諸国の比較政治経済を勉強しています。現在の研究プロジェクトは、欧米などの先進国で使われている「社会投資政策」が、社会の豊かさや、安定した雇用、所得の平等などを産み出すことに成功しているかどうかを分析するものです。
教育、家族支援、女性政策、積極的労働市場政策などの社会投資政策を分析しています。
I study the comparative political economy of industrial countries.
My current research project investigates the social and economic effects of social investment policies pursued by different welfare states of Europe, North America, and Oceania. Governments hope that social investment policies will (1) promote productivity and economic growth by creating high-skilled labor forces that can adapt to the imperatives of the new knowledge economy and technological advances, and (2) meet the need to respond to new social risks, such as single-parent families and workers in unstable, precarious employment.
I investigate whether these policies help achieve the goals of economic growth, employment, and equality. The social investment policies I examine are education, family support, labor market programs, and redistribution, among others.

A short comment about Meigaku for prospective candidates.

大きな夢を持ってください。そしてそれに向かって一生懸命がんばってください。あなたが本当に必死にがんばれば、たいていの夢は叶うでしょう。
転んだり、挫折したら、1回1回起き上がって前に進み続けてください。
「あなたにはできない」と、誰にも言わせないでください。「あなたにはできない」と、自分にも言わないでください。
Have dreams. Work hard at them. Chances are most of them will come true if you keep working hard.
Just get up and keep moving forward each time you fall.
Don’t let anybody say you can’t do something. Don’t tell yourself you can’t do something.
