Abstract: We are witnessing a rising number of studies that attempt to categorize Asian countries based on their welfare state programs. Such studies, however, often rely on typologies based on Western countries or cover only a single case or a small number of leading countries in the region (e.g., Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, and Singapore). In this paper, we examine the overall development of the welfare programs of the nine Asian countries (Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines) in three areas: the number and timing of legislation, the contents of the programs (program type, coverage, benefits, and financing), and the welfare efforts in terms of governmental welfare expenditure. The main objective of this paper is to provide a typology of Asian welfare state regimes by examining the key dimensions of welfare state programs and to compare both northeastern and southeastern Asian countries. We find that the northeastern and southeastern countries have both common and different characteristics across the regions. Using a hierarchical cluster analysis of the diverse dimensions of welfare programs in these countries, we were able to find three groups: Group A (Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and the Philippines), Group B (Hong Kong and Singapore), and Group C (Malaysia and Indonesia). The divergence lies in several dimensions: the main program type (social insurance versus central provident funds), the contents of the welfare programs (coverage, benefits, and financing), and the relative focus among different programs (health and education versus social security). Such findings suggest that we need to examine specific social and historical experiences for individual countries such as differences in timing, pace and degree of economic development, democratization, and globalization.

"Welfare Reform and Recent Welfare Recipients: a Comparative Study of the Factors Associated with Welfare Recipients’ Employability between 1998 and 2002" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Aug 10, 2006 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-09-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p103787_index.html>

Abstract: The 1996 welfare reform intends to move welfare recipients to work by imposing work requirements on recipients. To evaluate the effectiveness of the welfare reform, many researchers focus their study on welfare recipients’ employability. Kim (2000) examines the factors affecting the employment status of welfare recipients by using the March 1998 Annual Demographic Supplement File of CPS (Current Population Survey).
The authors in this paper extend Kim’s research by using the March 2002 CPS file to explore the factors associated with recent welfare recipients’ employment probability. A total of 1,353 welfare recipients were identified. The logistic regression revealed that recent welfare recipients with a high school degree have greater odds of finding a job compared to those without a high school degree. This finding differs from Kim’s study where there is no significant difference in the possibility of employment between recipients with and without a high school degree. The authors explain that this different finding is associated with the labor market circumstances of a specific period. That is, the poor labor market in 2002 provides an unfavorable environment so that compared to recipients with a high school degree, recipients without a high school degree show a significant disadvantage in finding a job.

Abstract: In this paper, we examine the conditions under which states restored legal immigrants’ rights to welfare, combining quantitative and qualitative evidence. We build on race-centered theories of welfare state development, but go beyond a black-white analysis. We argue that states’ generosity towards legal immigrants depends on the relative political power of Latino and Asian immigrants. Consistent with our argument, our regression analysis indicates that states were more likely to restore legal immigrants’ rights to welfare when foreign-born people, most of who were Asian or Latino, made up a larger share of the population. We also found that states were more likely to restore legal immigrants’ welfare rights when they were already spending a larger portion of their state budget on welfare and per capita income was higher. Our paper also provides detailed case studies of the campaigns to restore legal immigrants’ welfare rights in three states, all of which involved considerable coalition work among ethnic, welfare, and immigrant organizations.
