法務省に「不法残留者」、報道で「不法滞在者」と呼ばれる人たちは、なぜ「不法」になっているのか。本研究は38名の非正規移民へのインタビューを通じ、「不法」が法制度によって生産（De Genova 2002）される過程を明らかにした。また、38名は1〜30年、日本で生活していた。何が非正規移民の日本での生活を維持させたのか。その要素を”Migration Infrastrcture”（移住インフラ）（Xiang and Lindquist 2014）を元に明らかにした。多文化研では、 38名のうちベトナム出身の調査対象者の声の一部を紹介する。
Irregular Immigration into Japan : Producing and Sustaining “illegality” KATO Jotaro (Waseda University)
The MoJ and media call irregular migrants “illegal stayers”. However, why do irregular migrants become “illegal”? This research illustrates the process that the legal system produces “illegality” (De Genova 2002) on them by interviewing 38 irregular migrants. They have lived in Japan for one to 30 years. What does sustain their lives? The researcher revealed the elements of that utilizing the concept “migration infrastructure” (Xiang and Lindquist 2014). The researcher will introduce part of narratives of Vietnamese informants in TABUNKAKEN. ーーーーーーー
The Norm of Preventing Statelessness in International Law and Its Influence on Japanese Nationality Law AKIYAMA Hajime (University of Tsukuba) http://id.nii.ac.jp/1130/00004727/
Ph.D. (International Christian University, March 2020)
This dissertation examined the influence of the norm of preventing statelessness in international law on Japanese Nationality Law including Constitution and Nationality Act. Although the norm on nationality in international law, including the norm of preventing statelessness, influenced the 1889 Constitution and 1899 Nationality Act, such influence is absent after that. This dissertation argues that two international factors (the status of Japan in international society and status of the norm of preventing statelessness in international society) and two national factors (the impact of stateless persons in Japan and Japanese national identity) determined the Japanese reaction to the norm of preventing statelessness in international law. ーーーーーーーー
