Hawai‘i, the IPR, and the Japanese Immigration Problem

Hawai‘i, the IPR, and the Japanese Immigration Problem

A Focus on the First and Second IPR Conferences of 1925 and 1927

(p.96) Chapter 4 Hawai‘i, the IPR, and the Japanese Immigration Problem
Hawaii at the Crossroads of the U.S. and Japan before the Pacific War

This chapter narrates how the Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR) resolved cross-cultural conflicts like the immigration problem between Japan and the United States and antiforeign nationalism in China. Taking these realities into account, the IPR set out to resolve these problems through positive region-wide consultation and objective research concerning regional issues. By the time of its dissolution thirty-five years later in 1960, the organization had compiled an unprecedented record of conferencing, research and publication, and international organizing and public involvement that engaged leaders from all sectors of all the major Pacific powers. Even though the IPR played a pioneering role in Pacific relations during this period, the question remains as to whether or not it achieved its founding objectives.

Keywords:   Institute of Pacific Relations, antiforeign nationalism, immigration problem, cross-cultural conflicts, China, Pacific powers
