Drawing on qualitative research methods, my project will consider how the current configuration of state, local government and NGO policies and programmes are shaping the social, political and economic incorporation of foreign residents in Japan. While the nation state has long been used as the point of reference for investigating incorporation processes, I am using the city as the context for understanding citizenship and migrant incorporation.
