Since Japan’s introduction as a member of the U.N. on December 18, 1956, Japan has wanted to save future generations from the horrors of war. And since then Japan has contributed to world peace and prosperity. Since 2016 Japan has been serving as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council. Having a key role in the maintenance of peace and security in the international community. Japan’s Prime Minister Abe announced at the 71st UN General Assembly that will provide about 2.8 billion US dollars over the three years, from 2016 to 2018, in humanitarian and self-reliance assistance to refugees and migrants, as well as support to host countries and communities. Japan has been agreeing on better conditions for refugees.
Japan has made provisions to the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act to provide for fair management over the entry and departure procedures of all persons in Japan, the residence of foreign nationals in Japan, as well as consolidate the recognition procedures of the refugee status. Japan has not been allowing as many refugees into the country in past cases where some applicants who committed crimes used it as a way to dodge deportation. Although Japan itself doesn’t allow most immigrants into the country, Japan has been providing money for immigrants around the world for numerous years. Japan also has accepted 2,302 Ukrainians since the Ukraine and Russian War.
Japan will continue to provide financial assistance for refugees around the country however for repatriation to happen global/country disputes that will cause citizens to flee needs to be resolved and inter-country disputes need to be put to light and resolved to keep citizens safe in their home countries. The UN needs to have these issues resolved and ask for them to be resolved to allow for refugees to go back home and not have as many refugees exiting the country. Asking countries to sanction others that do not comply in solving disputes should be an option as many refugees leave their country for war and ethnic, tribal and religious violence.
