This paper undertakes a theoretical discussion of Shigeo Okamura’s Chiiki fukushi-ron(“Theory of Community-based Welfare,” published 1974)with the aim of clarifying the challenges inherent in one ofthe theory’s key concepts, namely that of the “Welfare Community.” Although not so as to radically upset its claims, the conceptual definition and deployment of the Welfare Community has been accompanied by the recognition of certain “fluctuations” in its fundamental logic. Informed by a specifically social-welfare perspective and reconstructed based on subjective and individual principles, the Welfare Community concept can encompass possibilities for local communities in everyday life and the overall social context by focusing on the life challenges faced by specific individuals. In contemporary society, which is growingever more diverse, complex, and all-encompassing, the Welfare Community concept represents an intelligent tool that enables individuals to lead lives of convention amidst diversity. For anyone to be able to master the use of this tool is both the aim of the Welfare Community concept and a future challenge for local communities.
