Special Issue: Friends and Foes of Multicultural EastAsia

Invited editor: Naoto Higuchi, Tokushima University (higuchinaoto@yahoo.co.jp) and Yuki Asahina, HarvardUniversity (yukiasah@hawaii.edu)

 

Three decades have passed since East Asia emerged as a newdestination for migrants. While industrialized economies in this region have mostlyaccepted temporary guestworkers and coethnic migrants, the rapid emergence of multiethnicsocieties has brought about new research into multicultural East Asia. In the lastdecade, emergingscholarship on xenophobic discourses and practices has also documented the riseof a backlash against multiculturalism, primarily from the right-wing but alsofrom liberal-oriented actors. Most such studies exclusively address either oneor the other dimension of this inter-related development. Against thisbackground, the purpose of this special issue is to provide a forum forcross-national conversation on the historical process and political contextsthat shape the complex landscape of multiculturalism and xenophobia in EastAsia.The topics that we are particularlyinterested in include, but are not limited to:

 

Multiculturalpolicies, practices and their critics

Racism,xenophobia and anti-immigrant sentiments

Pro-migrantand anti-immigrant movements

Legacies of colonialism and the Cold War on migration in East Asia

Cultures andsocial mobility of migrants

The rise of multicultural familiesand its implications
