- "Japan's emigration policy, particularly its sending of some 300,000 Japanese to Latin America and the Caribbean, lasted from the 1920s until the 1960s. Emigration has usually been treated as an international economic 'phenomenon' and therefore as policy- or politically-neutral. But this was certainly not true of Great Britain's export of convicts and other undesirables to the American colonies and later to Australia. Similarly, the Japanese state was the active underwriter and director of its emigration policy, which has often been criticized as a 'dumping-people policy' (kimin seisaku). Under what conditions, both global and domestic, did this policy emerge? What was the state's motivation or intent, and where did the emigrants originate?"

- Paul White, "The Japanese in Latin America: on the uses of diaspora". International Journal of Population Geography 9, no. 4 (July/August 2003):309-322. (Abstract only.)
- "International migration only began to affect Japan in the late nineteenth century, but since then there have been three waves of emigration, two of them customarily regarded as diasporas. Recent discussions of the concept of diaspora have highlighted a tendency for the broadening of the definition to encompass many different migratory situations. This article considers the debate over the characteristics of diaspora and examines a set of five criteria for a definition that can be used, among other things, to distinguish diaspora from immigrant settlement and transnationalism..."

- "The theme of the section was 'Japan outside Japan.' This section was to examine the extent of Japan's global presence through case studies. This global presence has resulted from Japan's economic expansion worldwide in the postwar period, notably in the last three decades. Twenty papers, besides Yoneyama Toshinao's opening address, were presented. These papers were divided into the following subsections: (1) Japanese women and men outside Japan, (2) Organizational transplant, (3) Cultural diffusion, (4) Japan and its images abroad, and (5) Past, memory, and resistance."
