GEAS Einstein Visiting Fellow plus Workshop/ Projekt Souveränität und Völkerrecht in China (Gunter Schubert)
How does East Asia respond to global migration? Which policies are designed in this region of the world to cope with economically and politically-induced migration flows which increasingly impact on China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong? To what extent are these policies informed by international norms and values? How are they implemented by government bureaucracies, and how do immigrants react to them? What underlying strategies do governments pursue by their immigration policies: are they trying to integrate, accommodate or assimilate immigrants and what do these concepts mean in the East Asian context? Finally, how does immigration in East Asia shape, even change, East Asian identities which are often found ethnocentrically closed and discriminatory against those who are not “genuine” Chinese, Japanese or Korean? What role does East Asian nationalism, in its different manifestations, play in the region’s migration management? These are the problems which this workshop will tackle.
