L'entrée officielle du Japon en 2014 dans la course aux talents à travers l'introduction du visa « Professions supérieures »

Abstract : This research deals with the creation process of the visa “Advanced Activities”. This visa is introduced by the Japanese government, in 2014, with the aim of welcoming highly skilled foreign professionals – it also indicates its official admission into the race for talents. The “race for talents” refers to the contest between world superpowers in the attraction of foreign talents that has begun in 1960’s. Japan officially joins this competition almost fifty years later. We will try to expose the factors that fostered the government’s interest into making such a policy. In order to do so, this research will rely on the tools of political science. The stage heuristic model will be used as public policy analysis framework. This analysis will help us understand Japan’s stance on immigration. The amendment of the immigration control act and the recognition of refugees in 1990 showed two desires from the Japanese authorities : attract as many foreign talents as possible and fail low-skilled foreign workers. As Japan’s working population is shrinking and the demographic crises threaten its status as an economic power, its migration strategy seems to rely on the permanent welcoming of HSFP. We will see that the creation of this strategy, given Japan social and economic situation, is in fact born out of the coercion to welcome foreign workers.
