Barriers to Realizing a Diverse Society in Japan — Globalization of the Heart
Symposium: Barriers to Realizing a Diverse Society in Japan – Globalization of the Heart (Tokyo)
In recent years, the number of non-Japanese people living in Japan has continued to grow, reaching 2.66 million to become more than 2% of the overall population for the first time. Labor shortages will become a reality in Japan through the steadily progressing population decline, and expectations for non-Japanese workers are increasing. We pursued the topics of the current situation of a multicultural symbiotic & diverse society in Japan and the emotional barriers from a Japanese mentality, listening to experts about what we ought to do to increase the globalization of our hearts.
