|Title||JAHSS-JASID Joint International Conference 2019 “Refugees/Migrants and Education/Employment: Seeking to Ensure Human Security”|
|About||This joint conference between the Japan Society for International Development (JASID) and the Japan Association for Human Security Studies (JAHSS) planned to be an ideal forum to address issues on refugees/migrants and education/employment. JASID was established thirty years ago with academics and practitioners who work on development. The Japan Association for Human Security Studies (JAHSS) is a newer association of academics focusing on human security. Together they can provide the best forum for seeking the junction between human security and sustainable development.
The conference aims to have a multidisciplinary, comprehensive approach, involving not only academic but also practitioners, with refugees and migrants in the center of all discussions – to realize the goal of “leaving no one behind”.
The conference will consider what kinds of integration supports are necessary and appropriate to realize a multicultural society in the future. It will also look into the issue of employment, as it realizes the fact that educational opportunity on its own is insufficient in addressing the refugees/migrants’ needs. Questions to be asked may include: Where are refugees and migrants placed currently in the Japanese society, and how appropriate is it? What can and should be done in this regard? What is expected of various stakeholders, such as universities? How can we encourage a mindset and make a system of learning from refugees and migrants? Will innovation of new technology such as block chain bring about new approach for inclusive education for refugees and migrants as well as promotion of multicultural society?
