    HIGUCHI Naoto

     View Summary

    We conducted an online survey to 77,084 web monitors and a mail survey to 11,522 Greater Tokyo residents, which clarified the following two topics: (1) leftists dominated among demonstrators and class factors could hardly explain who participated in demonstrations. Another finding is that anti-nuclear demonstrators are very likely to participate in anti-security law demonstrations, which means participation can reduce the hurdle to get involved in social movements. (2) we also analyzed characteristics of online right-wingers and found that they are not characterized by any class origins.

  • Between transnationalism and diaspora: Consequences of Peruvian migration to Japan

    HIGUCHI Naoto

     View Summary

    We have had interviews with 650 Peruvian migrants. Although quantitative analysis is yet to be done, tentative findings from our fieldwork are the followings. (1) the economic gap between Japan and Peru greatly influences on bifurcation toward transnationalism and diaspora. Those who could invest in Peru, when the value of yen was greater, tend to enjoy transnationalism, constructing their living basis in both countries and vice versa. (2) Regarding bifurcation among the second generation, the timing of migration matters much less than the first generation. Instead, accumulation of human capital (i.e. education and language skills) is much more important.

Specific Research 【 display / non-display

  • 多文化共生の批判的研究

    2020  

     View Summary

     多文化共生を批判するのではなく活用するならば、何がいかにして可能になるのか。本研究の目的は、こうした関心にもとづき、多文化共生をめぐる(1)概念的検討、(2)政策の批判的レビュー、(3)過去の政策からあり得た可能性の検討を行うことにある。(1)タギエフの枠組みを用いて、多文化共生I(反差別)と多文化共生II(交流)、排外主義I(二者関係)と排外主義II(三者関係)という理念型を抽出。(2)2014年以降に出された主要都市・都道府県の多文化共生関連大綱をもとに、IとIIの使用度合いを検証。(3)排外主義IIに対して多文化共生IIが有効性を発揮しえることが明らかになった。多文化共生IIに対する評価は従来低かったが、使いようによっては国家間の相克が生み出す排外主義に対抗しうる。
