by Hiroshi Komai
xforeign migrants.TIF (113650 bytes)
This book overviews the situation of foreign migrants in Japan based on the latest and most comprehensive data, and presents necessary policy recommendations. Komai, a foremost scholar on foreign residents in Japan, demonstrates the progress of settlement and the formation of ethnic communities. Special attention is given to workers under economic recession, and the conditions of non-workers such as pseudo-exiles, self-actualization seekers and marriage/family oriented migrants. The study presents an analysis of deprivation and discrimination against migrants and examines human rights violations in a wide range of areas, including subsistence, residence, liberty, social life, culture and political participation.
