The evolution of “Care” in France and in Japan

16-03-2017 @ 13:30 - 17:00

This Seminar is dedicated to the analysis of the evolution of “Care” in France and in Japan. Firstly, the situations and the voices of the French and Japanese nurses working on the place of residence of their patients will be presented. We shall show the reasons and the consequences of a domestic support more important in Japan than in France. The conditions will be also approached under which these activities could be more professionalized. So, beyond the care in the limited sense, a real ” society of Care” must be able to be established. Secondly, this objective and its modalities will be revealed. In this perspective, exceeding the chain of vulnerabilities needs to address the question of the social recognition of the vulnerable individual. To evoke the necessary development of the collectives of the “Care”, in France and in Japan, implies to ask the question of the women’s role in the French and Japanese societies. Are the relations of “gender” in ” Care ” moving or, on the contrary, is there a boundary always so persevering which separates the lives of women and men?

This seminar will be held with the moral support of the Japanese Embassy in Paris

Speakers: Maryse Boulongne-Garcin, Tetsu Harayama, Philippe Mossé, Rieko Yamashita, Guillaume Le Blanc, Fabienne Brugère.
