Various problems associated with the peoples and religions of East Asia -- viewed through interaction between Public Anthropology and the Sociology of Religion

Workshop #2: "East Asian immigrants and ethnicity"

Together with the increase in immigrants and their many religions, Japanese society is becoming a multi religious society. In our increasingly borderless world in which people move freely across borders, a global viewpoint on things is the ideal. However, research into the movement of peoples and religions has not progressed very far.

The purpose of this workshop is to publicize and share the viewpoints of the presenters on the results thus far of their research into the movement of East Asian peoples and their religions.
