Recently, especially since 2000, social welfare has in nature become a substitution for social policy. This has clearly become stronger in comparison with the previous period. To keep this tendency in check, it is important that social welfare movements collaborate with labor movements. Although the latter movement was explained to a certain extent in KIMURA (2011), discussion to establish this larger claim in this book is insufficient. The tasks of this paper are, first, to prove that social welfare systems have increasingly substituted for social insurance systems (labor insurance system) from 2000 onward; second, to clarify the social significance of this substitution; and third, to propose a solution for reducing the use of social welfare as a substitution.
