      More details

      Language:Japanese   Publisher:The Kantoh Sociological Society  

      Global migration has been prompted by the advancement of international transport systems and communication. In terms of foreigners' settlement issues, a study of migration has generally examined adjustment patterns of new settlers to the host societies relating to the characteristic of ethnicity. Additionally, a study of international labor migration has prevailed in ascertaining the mechanisms of trans-national population movement <i>en masse</i> with no consideration of sojourners. The objective of this paper is to delineate the concept of the sojourner, incorporating features of the nature of contemporary human mobilization and settlement, in response to the increasing significance of the effects of sojourning residents, who contrast with the immigrants as a permanent settler, on the host communities.

      There remains substantial disagreement about the impact of Internet use on trust. Putnam stated the main culprit in demise of American’s social capital were the rise of television and the Internet. Other studies indicate that Internet use may enhance social capital and contribute to higher levels of generalized trust and larger social networks. Yet other studies suggest that Internet use and/or heavy television watching neither increases nor decreases general trust in others. The present study aims to find the impact of media (i.e., television viewing and Internet use) on trust and mistrust by using the Japanese survey data which we have conducted. Results indicate that there are clear differences between trusting and mistrusting persons with regard to media use, and heavy television viewing leads to mistrust in Japan. The present study suggests that communication by the Internet help to establish trusting relationships. The results of previous studies are partially supported.

      The creative city policies have been attracting worldwide attention as a strategy for regenerating cities since the 2000s. This study focuses on three cities, Yokohama, which adopted a creative city policy in 2004, Kanazawa, which was registered in the UNESCO creative cities network in 2009, and Hamamatsu, which called itself as a creative city since 2007 and joined with the UNESCO network in 2014. This study revealed that: Yokohama City, without historical background of a feudal city, utilizes contemporary art in order to regeneration of the central waterfront area; Kanazawa City as a typical traditional city aims to revitalize through protecting local traditional crafts and reserving historical townscape; and Hamamatsu City, having a major instrument industry as one of its economic base, makes an attempt to adapt to deindustrialization by promoting the city as a town of music.

      The objective of this research is to ascertain the cooperative mechanism between local communities, including shopping malls, and ethnic communities, embracing transnational actors. Fieldwork was conducted mainly in the Ikebukuro district in Tokyo. We can find the existence of some loose networks between them, albeit hardly find the strong ties for cooperation each other. When the both groups approach more actively, there are possibilities for inducing the local revitalization. Thus, it is required to continue the research in order to present the agenda for the prospective inner city re-development.

      We can find many immigrants' communities in Pacific Rim area. Here, not only major migrants such as ethnic Chinese and oversea Indians, but Japanese, southeastern Asian origin peoples in US, and Africans in Asia. Even in the case of Chinese and Indians, their communities have a vast variety.
      This project presented varieties of immigrats' community in this area, and rapid changes after 2001. These rapid changes and volume of immigrants are supported by improvement of transporation, world wide communication, and money transfer. We also tried to describe immigrants' community not from viewpoint of residents but from frequent travellers.

      Since the 2000's, the creative city policy has been attracting worldwide attention as a strategy for regenerating cities that have been declined with globalization and deindustrialization. This study focuses on the city of Yokohama, which adopted a creative city policy in 2004, examining the causes and aims of that policy and the actual processes of its implementation and evaluating its achievements and remaining problems.
      The objectives of the policy are to attract artists and designers, to form a cluster of the creative industry and to reshape the waterfront of downtown area. The processes of the policy implementation reveal that the agenda of the creative city is characterized by urban design, having a weakness in industrial policy and civic involvement, and diminishing its spatial perspective due to the reorganization of public administration.

      Trust is an important research theme which forms one of the bases of sociology. Nonetheless, trust has been and continues to be treated primarily as a theoretical issue rather than one with empirical underpinnings. The findings of the present study, based on nationwide surveys among seven nations (the United States, Russia, Japan, Germany, the Czech Republic, Turkey and Taiwan), can be summarized as follows :
      1. Speculation about an interpersonal trust scale based on three questions as developed by the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan was validated for five nations, but not for Japan and Taiwan.
      2. Parental socialization of trust (or distrust) significantly impacts later adult trust (or distrust) among five nations, but not in Japan or Taiwan.
      3. Trust as a norm of reciprocity was not identified as a universal phenomenon among the seven nations.
      4. Finally, the bases of trust, at least from a personality perspective, were found to vary among the seven nations, though there were some commonalities.

      We conducted an interview survey to 400 women between 65 and 79 in Melbourne from 2005 to 2006. Because we spent much more research fund on the survey than we had planned, we could not afford to have the data entered in a personal computer in these years. We did it in 2007. Okayama University started to reconstruct buildings of Faculty of Education from April, 2008 and we could not use our private office for nearly one year. Because of this unexpected incident, we have not had the entered data inspected yet. The reconstruction ended in March, 2009 and we have come to utilise our private office again. We are planning to have the data inspected in August, 2009 and to start analising the data and writing papers from September, 2009.
      We selected 15 elderly women out of the 400 women, to whom we conducted the survey, interviewed these 15 women on their daily life and personal networks in detail and recorded the interviews on tapes. Nobe analysed the interview data and wrote some articles.

      Grant amount:\43680000 ( Direct Cost: \33600000 、 Indirect Cost:\10080000 )

      An outline of the findings of the study is as follows :
      During the first year, both in Japan and the United States, sources and resources, including data related to the project theme, were collected. As one result, it was found that in Japan people perceive globalization as passive while in the United States people perceive it merely as the status quo.
      As a result of a secondary analysis of existing data which was collected during the first year, existing theories, such as those of R.Robertson, A.Smith and N.Luhmann, regarding globalization and national identity were partially supported.
      For the second year, based on the results of the pretest survey of pairings between parents and their respective high school students, which had been conducted during the previous year, two nation-wide surveys were conducted using the two-stage stratified random sampling and face- to-face personal interview methods. The first survey was conducted among youth between 15 and 17 years of age and their parents (1,400 respondents, 700 pairs) as well as among 2,000 adults over 20 years of age. The second survey was carried out among 2,400 adults over 20 years of age.
      Parents and their respective children did not differ significantly in their attitudes toward the issues related to globalization and national identity. Also, in comparing the younger and older respondents, the older respondents had more traditional ways of thinking and maintained a relatively high degree of national identity. To the contrary, the younger respondents tended to perceive society and the world more globally and in a more modern approach.
      Let us classify the two concepts into four combinations, NG, Ng, nG, and ng, where n = a low degree of national identity ; N = a high degree of national identity ; g = a low degree of globalization ; and G = a high degree of globalization.
      Our findings indicated that the ratio of ng is the highest, followed by Ng, nG, and NG. This indicates that so far as social values are concerned, Japan still exhibits a traditional way of thinking among all age groups ; that it is has not progressed rapidly on general issues which relate to globalization and national identity. However, for some issues, such as foreign language usage, attitudes toward family and sex roles, environmental issues and attitudes toward work and the work ethic, we can see a relatively high degree of globalization.
      In addition to the surveys which we conducted, to discuss and exchange ideas and obtain information regarding our project from a cross-national perspective, four of our research team members visited experts in the field in Australia, China, and Germany during the first and the second years of the project. The third year was spent reporting on the results of our research.

      Grant number:11691082

      Grant amount:\11200000 ( Direct Cost: \11200000 )

      An outline of the findings of the study is as follows:
      1) The principal investigator selected ten universities and colleges from among the many which have been adopting voluntary education or service-learning programs. These include : Columbia University, New York University, Rutgers University, University of Michigan, University of Washington, Seattle University, Western Washington University, University of California at Berkeley, California State University at Chico, and Stanford University. The principal investigator then interviewed/surveyed the persons in charge of these programs toward determining (a) the present status of the volunteer education programs, (b) if they were experiencing any problems with respect to their voluntary educational curricula, and (c) ways to improve their programs and/or curricula.
      As a result of these interviews, it was found that in the United States voluntary education (i.e., service-learning) occupies a very important position in university curricula and faculty development programs.
      2) Two of the project's collaborators traveled to Germany and France, where, based on a survey plan set up by Professor Scheuch at the University of Koln (also a collaborator on this project), they collected relevant information (literature, reports, documents, and publications) and interviewed/surveyed eight key persons who are in charge of voluntary education programs and/or youth voluntary activity programs at the national government level.
      As a result of their work, they found that although among college/university students of both nations, interest in voluntary activities is high, concrete management of and information about voluntary activities programs were lacking.
      3) Based on pretests carried out last year among 18 colleges and universities in the United States (which is often regarded as the most advanced nation for voluntary activities), surveys among approximately 2,500 students were carried t. Simple statistical analyses (cross tabulations) of the survey results were completed. The survey results indicate that compared with the results of Japanese survey among Japanese students which were carried out in previous year among 16 universities and college among approximately 3,500 students by using almost identical questionnaire, the quency distributions of the many of questions are quite asimilar, but the image toward the voluntary activities among college/university students are quite different by using correspondence analysis. We can see that the survey results (as well as the interviews/surveys and information collection) among the U.S. colleges and universities which have adopted voluntary activities into their regular curricula, will prove quite beneficial in terms of determining means to integrate voluntary activities into regular college/university educational curricula in Japan in the near future.

      Although it would be premature to offer any firm conclusions from our university/college student volunteer activities research project, as data analyses are still underway, we here present several tentative observations based on the analyses completed to date.
      In early 2000, we surveyed approximately 3,500 undergraduates at 7 national, 1 prefectural, and 8 private universities. Identical 40-item questionnaires on student volunteer activities were self-administered to the sample. Survey questions targeted issues related to volunteer activity content, experiences and attitudes, including satisfaction with and positive and negative images about volunteer activities.
      In March 2000, about 100 institutions arid agencies which utilize university students as volunteers were asked 35 questions targeting student attitudes toward and evaluations of volunteer work. Additionally, attitudinal surveys were mailed to 10 student volunteers from each of these institutions. Finally, our research team recently interviewed professors teaching volunteer-related courses at 36 universities.
      To date, our findings and analyses have elicited the following notable observations :
      1. There is rather strong interest in volunteer activities among Japanese university students ; however, this does not necessarily lead to actual involvement in volunteering.
      2. In general there is a positive image among students about volunteer activities.
      3. There is a general belief among students and professors that volunteer activities are based on free choice and should not be included in for-credit curricula. It will be important to lean from the United States, Where volunteer activities are often implemented in the regular curriculum as "service learning." Our project is making every effort to adapt service leaning to facilitate volunteer education in Japanese universities.
      4. There are serious discrepancies in attitudes and behaviors between student volunteers and the institutions for which they do volunteer work.
      5. Up to now there has been no established means for information exchange among those who teach volunteerrelated courses. Facilitating such communication is imperative.
      6. The Japanese government, local governments, or universities and colleges must establish means to disseminate information about volunteer activities.
      7. It is important to establish evaluation systems for student volunteer activities. Grading such activities is perceived as awkward in view of the good will element.
      8. The production of a handbook is vital for those Who teach volunteer related courses and who coordinate volunteer activities with the institutional recipients.

      This Project have explored the sociological meanings of the urban renewal projects in the Japanese Mega-Cities.
      (1) We have gathered the actual informations and analyzed the changing face of the inner-city communities in Central Tokyo, Osaka, Kobe, Hiroshima from the viewpoints of the following title : the decline and revitalization of the inner-city communities in contemporary Japan.
      (2) The specific innercity communities, IKEBUKURO,NIPPORI (TOKYO), IKUNO-KU (OSAKA) have experienced the living together of the New Asian foreigners from overseas countries, China, Taiwan, Koreas and Others.
      (3) There was intense debate about fieldwork methodology for elucidating Asian newcomers'actual living conditions in the Central Tokyo districts, although the research data, gathered from in-depth intervien over an extended period, vividly highlighted the newcomers'inarticulate voices.
      (4) In response to the tremendous changes in Japan's urban and Commonity life, we have to become concerned with many of the broader changes occuring in post-industrial society including the effects of cross-national migration.
      As a result, there is a great interest in comparative perspectives, especially of overseas Asian ethnic enclaves.
      As it to confirm that that the city is now seen as a global society, the final project (1994) highlighted this theme.
