Germany and Japan are both confronting substantial social and political challenges of an increasingly aging society. Their goal is to find sustainable solutions, particularly with regards to social and labor rights. Among important objectives in this field are generational equity, financial viability of the social security system, and prevention of age discrimination. By comparing both countries’ legal frameworks, resolutions and strategies on the issue, potential problems can be uncovered and possibly avoided.
