Talitha Kum Japan Online Seminar 2022
The Issues of Technical Intern Training Program
and the New Acceptance System for Foreign Workers
~From the Movements to Review the Program and the Catholic Church’s Activities~

Since the latter half of the 1980’s, Japan has dealt with domestic labor shortage by accepting foreign workers as disposable “labor force” in the forms of overstayers, workers of Japanese descent and technical intern trainees. In particular, the “Technical Intern Training Program” has been criticized by international communities as a hotbed of trafficking and modern slavery system.

This year 2022 is a time to review the 5 year-period after the enactment of the Technical Intern Training Program Law, which aimed at improving the system in response to such criticism. On the other hand, the human rights violation continues under technical intern training system during the 5 years as well, and several voices calling for a fundamental review of the system have raised from various fields.

In this seminar, we will discuss the new acceptance system that Japanese society should aspire for, and consider how the Catholic Church can tackle the current situation of foreign workers.
