With the attack on Charlie Hebdo and terrorist incidents in France, European immigration policy is drawing attention. France has a where policy of jus soli (citizenship by birthplace) and assimilation of foreigners is the basic rule while many other European countries follow the policy of jus sanguinis (citizenship by parents) and is inclined towards multiculturalism, for a different background to immigration policy. Who are “immigrants” that we are talking about? Professor Watanabe will talk about the policy agenda of France which has been receiving immigrants for a long time, differences with other European countries and the question of what Japan can learn from France.
