Japanese Labor Under Pressure: Changing Rules and Identities
April 6, 2000
Center for Japanese Studies
Paper presenters and topics
Steven Vogel (Department of Political Science, UC Berkeley)
"Japanese Labor Relations in Hard Times"
This presentation focuses on recent developments in the Japanese labor relations system, in light of the prolonged economic crisis. What is changing and what is not?

Mary Brinton (Center for Advanced Studies in Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University)
"Stresses and Strains in Japan's Youth Labor Market"
This paper discusses the worsening job opportunities for recent Japanese high school graduates, and outlines some of the new issues confronting schools and students.

Keiko Yamanaka (Institute for the Study of Social Change, UC Berkeley)
"Feminization of Japanese Brazilian Labor Migration to Japan"
This is a case study of the feminization of Japanese Brazilian labor migration to Japan in the context of female migration throughout the Asia Pacific in the 1990s.

Mike Douglass (Asia/Pacific Research Center, Stanford University)
"National Identity and Global Migration: Japan in the Context of the East Asia Economic Crisis"
This will deal generally with East Asia, Japan included, with regard to the recent economic crisis and the response of all governments to expel foreign workers, make conditions for their presence more restrictive, and increase penalties for "illegal" migrants. Central to these policies is the bundling of race/ethnicity with national identity that is characteristic of East Asia.
