Advocacy and Governance for Immigrants

Advocacy and Governance for Immigrants

(p.1) Introduction Advocacy and Governance for Immigrants
New Policies for New Residents

Deborah J. Milly

Cornell University Press

This introductory chapter describes Ōizumi and Ōta—both communities in Tokyo—as homes to a substantial number of foreigners in 2013. Ōizumi has 41,000 residents, 14.5 percent of whom are registered foreigners that are mostly Brazilians and Peruvians (84 percent). Meanwhile, 3.3 percent of Ōta's 220,000 residents are registered foreigners: Latin America, (50 percent), Filipinos (14.7 percent) and Chinese (12.6 percent). On that note, Japan has adopted governance approaches and measures for supporting foreign residents similar to those found in other countries. The book comparatively situates Japan with Korea, Spain, and Italy—all of which experienced a marked increase of foreign residents—to examine the dynamics of policy change regarding immigration.

Keywords:   Ōizumi, Ōta, registered foreigners, foreign residents, Japan, Korea, Spain, Italy, Tokyo
