What We Can All Do to Create a More Global Japan: The Importance of Acculturation Strategies

The 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics loom on the horizon.  With this seminal event approaching, discussions will proliferate about how Japanese society can become more global and what type of mindset and skills are necessary for Japan’s working populace to become “gurobaru jinzai.  Based on his research over the past 20 years, Professor Adam Komisarof will clarify how an understanding and transformation of acculturation strategies can improve the quality of intercultural relations between non-Japanese and Japanese, and through the mutual efforts of both sides, create a more global society and a populace better prepared to meet the demands of the 21st century workplace.
