企画書・概要 (Abstract of Project Proposal)

本プロジェクトでは以下の三つを目的とする。すなわち、1.現在行われている外国のバックグラウンドを持つ子どもへのサポートが提供されている事例を記録する 2.それらのプログラムや好事例の交流や共有を行う 3.社会における移民子弟や多文化家族の包摂に向けた知見の普及や政策提言を行う。

Large-scale international migration has been occurring in Asia since the 1970s and has contributed to increasing cultural diversity in countries affected by migration. This initiative focuses on children as international migrants and those in multicultural families (i.e., children from cross-cultural marriages) whose social location has implications for identity formation and belonging. As migrants or as children of mixed cultural heritage, they straddle the cultures of their home and immigration countries or the cultures of their parents. With the right support, children from diverse backgrounds can thrive and the larger community can become more inclusive. This initiative has a three-fold objective: to document existing programs that provide support to children with a foreign background; to promote the exchange and sharing of programs and good practices; and to disseminate the lessons learned and policy recommendations towards the inclusion of children of migrant and multicultural background in society. The proposed project will be implemented in the Philippines, Japan and South Korea. The main activities of the project will consist of: identification of existing programs and organizations providing support to migrant children and those in multicultural families in each country, organizing study visits and meetings with selected stakeholders in the three countries, dissemination of project activities and knowledge products using various formats and media, and producing a final report and recommendations. The activities will be implemented between November 2015 and October 2016.
