Studies of state compliance with international human rights norms and law often focus on explaining variation in compliance across two or more states. This article addresses variation in compliance within one state—Japan. Studying two different issues in one country means that instead of asking “why do states comply with international norms,” this...
Chapter
The 1997 Convention to prohibit the production, use, transfer, and stockpiling of antipersonnel landmines (also known as the Ottawa Convention or Mine Ban Treaty) is a landmark accomplishment for two key reasons (Williams and Goose 1998; Lawson and Tomlinson 1998; Landmine Monitor 1).

Demographic shifts and increased migration, coupled with restrictive immigration and citizenship policies, have left Northeast Asian states ill equipped to confront the challenges of growing numbers of long-term sojourners. When the policy of a state that is resistant to immigration is at odds with the local reality, as is the case in Japan, local...

Recent trends in migration across the Pacific Rim have suggested that neighbourhoods have become important sources of community identity, requiring a re-evaluation of the relationship between urban places and immigrants.

Approaching compliance from within a constructivist framework, author Petrice R. Flow...

The articles in this, the one of three special issues of Alternatives on the theme of indigenous politics in the globalizing world, deal with important questions: How are the flows of people and ideas as well as the institutions to manage them impeded or assisted by the state and other social, political, and economic institutions? What does improve...
Article
This article explores why Japanese government policies, despite major reforms, still do not comply well with international norms of protecting refugees. There has been great progress in the growth of nongovernmental organizations and civil society, the strong presence of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Japan, and the reduction...
Article
This article revisits the issue of whaling in an attempt to account for Japan's decision to observe the temporary moratorium on commercial whaling at the end of the 1986 whaling season and to remain a member of the International Whaling Commission despite increasingly restrictive regulations. This analysis develops an argument that focuses on the s...
