Seminar "Legal Support Models for Foreign Residents in Multiple Occupations and Cultures"

2015-3-20 (Fri) 1:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

The seminar "Legal Support Models for Foreign Residents in Multiple Occupations and Cultures" (headed by HOSHINO Kazumi, Visiting Professor, Global Collaboration Center, Osaka University) under the sponsorship of The Association of Japanese Clinical Psychology will be conducted on Friday, March 20.
University of California, Berkeley, where Prof. Hoshino conducted research as a visiting researcher and special researcher, sets diversity as a feature that the university should embrace. The university makes an explicit claim that individuals must be respected regardless of differences in gender identity, age, education, social status, culture, race, religion, sexual orientation, and disability. It emphasizes individuals' diversity and sets out its policy to provide support from the perspective of the minority.
In this seminar, using the example of foreign residents needing interpreters at the Osaka Municipal Court, researchers and practitioners in clinical psychology, law, medicine, psychiatric medicine, cultural anthropology, sociology as well as legal interpreters and lawyers will discuss legal support models for foreign residents in multiple occupations and cultures.
