Immigration Policy and Highly Skilled Workers: The Case of Japan

Contents:

Author Info

  • Scott M. Fuess

Abstract

Concerned about shortages of highly skilled workers, especially those with international specialties, Japan adjusted its immigration policy in 1990. The government made it easier for skilled foreign specialists to work in Japan. In the wake of the policy adjustment, this study examines whether there have been changes in inflows of skilled foreigners. Though Japan is still wary of immigration and official policy remains comparatively strict, it is clear that skilled professionals are entering Japan in larger numbers.
