JAPAN–SOUTH KOREA IMMIGRATION POLICY EXCHANGE

2017–Present

Japan and South Korea are both facing rapid increases in immigration, leading to the development of more multicultural and multiethnic societies. In November 2017, JCIE began a two-year program aiming to facilitate the exchange of opinions on societal and governmental policy proposals to empower immigrants living in both countries.

This program has featured a number of meetings in both South Korea and Japan featuring participants who have immigrated from Vietnam, the Philippines, Nepal, and Myanmar. JCIE also started a mutual site-visit program between the two countries to allow participants to better understand the unique situations faced by migrants.
