4. Internal Internationalization Study




Internal Internationalization Study

The purpose of this study group is to define “internal internationalization” in terms of employment, education, health-care and community. We aim to achieve this via field work, public lectures and symposium, in a collaborative effort throughout the industry-academia-government network. This network consists of private companies, research institutions, schools, the public sector, and civil societies.  In addition, we intend to disseminate our research and insights to the general public, not only to JASID members.

“Internal internationalization” has often come up in discussions about multicultural coexistence, international exchange and cooperation, and International Covenants on Human Rights in the fields of sociology, anthropology and political science.  Based on prior research, we focused on changes in the labor environment that came as a result of rapid changes in Japan’s demographic composition due to the ultra-aging issue.  In particular, we can contribute to a multicultural society flourish by evaluating the status of foreign workers from different angles. We would form our evaluation based on acts such as the September 1, 2017 “Partial Revision of the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act” and the November 1, 2017 “Act on Proper Technical Intern Training and Protection of Technical Intern Trainees.”

To that end, this study group will carry out research and analyze “internal internationalization” by sharing data throughout the industry-academia-government network in regular study group sessions.  Additionally, research results will be disseminated by publications, lectures and symposiums.
