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.

HSP Seminar (#225) Resident Filipinos in Aging Japan: Future Perspectives

Description: As more developed countries (MDC) face aging, low birthrate and “war for talent”, Japan too faces decreasing working population. Today, increasing number of resident Filipinos are engaged in various jobs such as housekeeping, elderly caregiving, farming, IT business, factory, service industry (including distribution industry), construction, and so on. We are going to understand the background of their presence in Japan. It is pointed out that Japan’s poor migration policy forces local governments, citizen’s groups and private companies to make up the gaps. We are going to seek how Japan can make the society comfortable for them to realize a globally competitive multicultural society by crafting pertinent policies.
