 Prof. Kikuchi introduced the relationship between polarization and social security law in Japan from four aspects: the development of social security law in Japan, changes in legal personality, labor rights and the right to life, informal employment and social security law. Prof. Kikuchi pointed out that the employment model was often considered of the most important reason to cause the polarization of Japan, but it is difficult to accurately understand the polarization of Japan by just studying the Japanese social security law. Therefore, we need study the labor law, employment policy and social security law on Japan 's Polarization. With the diversification of labor relations and the emergence of various forms of informal wage labor, it is difficult to achieve the goal of solving social polarization if the social security of these informal employers is neglected. Therefore, we must pay attention to social security of various forms of workers to create a fair and just environment where each individual could pursuit freedom and independent from the perspective of labor law and social security law multi-dimensional structure. Everyone has a profound understanding on Japanese social security law theory and practice after listening the lecture.
During the interaction phase, there was a heated discussion on the social security construction of informal employers based on the relationship between labor law and social security law. The lecture lasted two hours and ended with a detailed and patient answer.
