Is Japan prepared for an ethnically-diverse society? The volume examines the past and future trajectory of Japans immigration and integration policies and related institutions, taking a cross-disciplinary approach in social sciences. The authors highlight critical issues and challenges that the nation is facing as a result of the governments inarticulate migrant-acceptance policy, e.g. in the fields of refugee policies, multicultural education and disaster protection. How can the situation be improved? The book investigates the changes and initiatives needed to build a resilient policy regime for a liberal, pluralistic, and inclusive Japan.
