Seminar on the UK Indicators of Integration and their Implications for Refugee Integration in Japan
(Thursday, December 5, 2019)

The Sasakawa Peace Foundation is pleased to invite you to a seminar on the UK Indicators of Integration, to be co-organised by Hitotsubashi University Faculty of Social Science Global Leaders Program on December 5, 2019. The UK experts who led a research team at the UK Home Office will visit Japan in the context of a project run by the New and Old Diversities Exchange (NODE) UK-Japan Network and supported by the Economic and Social Research Council and the Japan Foundation. In this seminar, they will share with us the origins of the Indicators of Integration framework, its content, and the potential applications.

The Japanese government recently decided to expand the scope of the Refugee Resettlement Program starting from next April, making this the ideal time to formulate strategies to support refugees’ lives and integration in Japan. Accordingly, this seminar will also feature discussions with Japanese experts and practitioners, providing a valuable opportunity to exchange views on refugee integration and the implications of the UK’s indicators in Japan. We look forward to welcoming all of you to this seminar.
