Example text

Impacts of Globalization on Japanese Education 21 a belief that simply ‘‘breaking down’’ globalization is not enough. We instead emphasize the necessity of – having pieced out the multiple reverberations of globalization in a particular national context – to then put them back together to locate not only the symbiosis and synergies but also the ruptures, conflicts, tensions, and – most central to this chapter – the unseen consequences that result; aspects of recent change that are rendered invisible if the component parts of ‘‘globalization’’ are simply cordoned off by disciplinary-based research and examined in isolation.

These changes were clearly the results of the ‘‘real’’ impacts of globalization on Japanese education. Economic forces, such as pressures on wage competition with other countries necessitating in a reduction in the cost of labor, and its concomitant demand for more flexible workforce arrangements leading to the increase of non-standard employment, are areas in which Japanese society has become permeable to ‘‘external’’ trends and changes occurring along its economic borders. However, Japan still exhibits a great unease in opening its political borders to welcome more immigrants and allow more foreign workers to take up jobs that would allow a similar reduction in wages domestically.

What we find particularly fascinating in this discussion then is how an ‘‘imagining’’ of developments outside of Japan came to be used first to push the notion of creativity, individuality, and ‘‘room to grow,’’ then how it later came to be employed to help repeal those very same policy reforms. This reveals both how twisted and dynamic the effects of ‘‘globalization’’ are when one seeks to understand the phenomenon at the level of rhetoric and discourse, but also how diverse the ‘‘imagining’’ of the challenges of globalization can be among various domestic political actors.
