With the Russian invasion of Ukraine, once again the world has seen the direct connection between global aspirations, domestic policy, and the rise of refugees. Here in Japan media and academic voices have celebrated Japanese recent “acceptance” of displaced Ukrainians. This presentation juxtaposed Japan’s often misleading rhetoric and refugee recognition practice.
