HSP Seminar (#226) Panel on Migrant Children in Japan, With a Focus on Education

Description: Migration is not simply a temporary endeavor anymore for more and more people. The border-crossing activities of men and women especially have brought with them issues such as intermarriages and global householding. Its impacts become much more felt when one factors in childbearing and childrearing. In Japan, the movements of people, both Japanese and foreigners, have helped create a generation of children who are constantly being uprooted from one culture to another, rendering them neither Japanese nor entirely foreign. This panel hopes to shed light on these issues and show how various organizations help these children settle in Japan.
