NEW COUNTRY: Japan joins MIPEX, ranks 29th out of 33

The Migration Policy Group has led a MIPEX assessment of Japan. This page contains the same information as for all other MIPEX countries. The Japanese data is available for 2010 only. The data was collected in September 2010 but also reflects the situation as of 31 May 2010, therefore the data is directly comparable with the 31 MIPEX III countries. The 31 MIPEX III country profiles do not include the Japanese results, nor do the overall policy findings as these were published in March 2011...In Japan, the data was completed by a national independent expert Atsushi Kondo at Meijo University and double-checked by peer reviewer Yamawaki Keizo at Meiji University and Chikako Kashiwazaki at Keio University. MPG's central research coordinator staff checked all responses to guarantee that they understood the questions correctly and answered them consistently as in other countries. In each country the very few questions raised between expert, peer reviewer, and central research coordinator were resolved together. Additional comments from the experts and desk research can also be downloaded.
