Tuukka Toivonen holds a Ph.D. in Social Policy from the University of Oxford. He serves as a Junior Research Fellow at Green Templeton College, University of Oxford, and as a visiting scholar at the Research Institute for Economics and Business Administration (RIEB) of Kobe University. His current scholarly work is centered around youth, policy and social innovation. He is now recruiting research collaborators for a new global project on social innovation communities, based on the observation that such dense online/offline communities best explain socially entrepreneurial activities by young people. A co-editor of A Sociology of Japanese Youth: From Returnees to NEETs, his monograph, Japan’s Emerging Youth Policy: Getting Young Adults Back to Work (Abingdon: Routledge) will be published later this year.
