Online International Symposium
“The Minority Issues in Asia: The Process for Multicultural Coexistence”

Date: December 4, 2021 (Saturday) 13:00-17:00 (JST)
Venue: Online (ZOOM)

In Asian countries, there are remaining deep-rooted prejudices and discriminations towards minorities or socially weaker people. These include refugees and migrants who left their countries for economic, political, and other reasons, and those who are forced to live at the bottom of the society because of racial, caste, religious, ethnic, and other discriminatory factors. Behind these discriminations, there are long-term historical affairs, customs, and traditions that many people have come to regard as matters of fact or common knowledges.

So far in these countries, several social reform movements for uplifting their status have been conducted for eliminating such discriminations and specified policies have been implemented for economically and socially supporting designated minorities. The prevailing COVID-19 pandemic, however, has accentuated deep-rooted discriminations and social disparities have increased the scale of the problem globally. Today, the Japanese government, academic institutions, and other organizations are vociferously appealing the importance of multicultural coexistence or intercultural understanding. We should therefore tackle these problems, try to share the recognition of the importance of these issues, and begin to work toward implementation of effective proposals.

In this symposium, we will discuss issues on the actual nature and extent of prejudice and discrimination that exist against minorities and socially weaker communities in Asian counties. For this purpose, we will invite three scholars specializing in the study of such minorities, namely Hisabetsu Buraku (discriminated community in Japan), Dalit (depressed class) women in Tamil Nadu, India, and migrant care workers. We will share the important issues, deepen our mutual understanding of specific factors in Asia, and would like to offer effective proposals toward finding solutions to these global issues. This international symposium will be widely open to the public.
