Abstract

Where is immigration to Japan headed? Is the country likely to make major changes in its policy approach that ease options for settlement? Can conditions for immigrants improve to encourage greater social inclusion? The books here consider themes that affect immigrants in Japan: political leaders’ views on immigration policy, cross-national realities of immigration and integration, the marginalizing character of policies, and society’s response to immigrants. The economic motivations behind increased immigration aside, considering how social incorporation of immigrants is already occurring should shed light on future prospects.
