In fiscal year 2009, ERIA completed a research project entitled: "Social Protection in East Asia - Current State and Challenges". Thirteen country experts on social protection were brought together to provide an overview, and to discuss challenges in social protection in their respective countries. The project highlighted the current state of social protection, and identified broad avenues to strengthen it. Even though the project provided useful overviews and broad directions for reforms, various thematic issues and impacts were not analyzed. These are gaps that the current research attempts to fill.
