The Impact of Internationalization

In the second of a series of six articles entitled "The Impact of Internationalization," yesterday's Daily Yomiuri looked at the issue of the nationality of children born in Japan with one non-Japanese parent. The law stipulates that such cildren must choose between japanese and the other nationality when they turn 22. The law has many opponents, mostly parents who feel forcing their children to choose a nationality can ruin their efforts to overcome cultural differences and is akin to making them choose between their parents.
