Care is essential to all life – we need it, we feel it, we desire it and none of us can live without it. It underpins so many practices in our lives – from reproductive work, to caring for children and the elderly, the community and ecology. This essential but mostly unpaid work is also something that the economy is dependent on, and it is mostly carried out by women. In this paper, Klein examines this “freeriding” (termed by Nancy Fraser) and its relationship with the ongoing stigmatisation of single mothers not in the labour force. Drawing on empirical research into contemporary welfare conditionality programs, Klein argues that welfare conditionality not only further stigmatises women, but can reinforce the expropriation of women’s labour. In drawing attention to the links between gender, welfare conditionality and capitalism’s dependency on care, Klein asks, what other ways can we imagine social security that values care and those that do the work?
The Update is the flagship conference of the Australia-Japan Research Centre (AJRC) in Crawford School of Public Policy, and the Japan Institute at The Australian National University. This year’s update brings together distinguished experts from Japan and Australia for the latest research and debates on how Japan will navigate the policy challenges of the post-COVID-19 world.
This panel will discuss the economic crisis from the coronavirus pandemic and the recovery strategy for Japan. How does COVID-19 change the economic outlook in Japan? Does a relatively high rate of corporate savings in major Japanese firms put them in a better position than their foreign rivals? Will Japan’s large government debt and limited capacity for fiscal expansion constrain the recovery process?
