The Fight Continues

ELT News was recently contacted by naturalized Japanese Arudou Debito (aka David Aldwinckle) regarding the latest development in his Japanese university blacklist. It seems Mie University is still blatantly discriminating between Japanese and foreign candidates for its teaching positions. The university was originally added to the blacklist because of an ad placed in 2000. A recent job ad clearly stated that the position of assistant/associate professor was one of tenure-track for a Japanese but only a (renewable) three-year contract for non-Japanese citizens. A professor from the university wrote asking that the job ad info be removed from the site. Mie is only one of 95 universities currently on the list. Read more on Debito's views here.
