Japan: inadequate protection against discrimination: Amnesty International submission for the UN universal periodic review, 28th session of the upr working group, november 2017

This submission was prepared for the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Japan in November 2017. Amnesty International is concerned about the lack of a legal framework to achieve equality and freedom from discrimination in all areas and on all grounds, including sexual orientation and gender identity. Amnesty International also raises concerns about continued executions, continued denial of full reparations for survivors of Japan’s military sexual slavery system before and during World War II, and lack of legal protection of the rights of migrant workers and their families.
