The degree and extent of inequality between and within the youth and foreign migrants groups differed, still inequality remained to be central to understanding the limited choices, opportunities and rights available to group members to realise their present and future life chances. The relation of inequality and deviance shows a similar dialectical relationship that while it portrays conflict in society, it also points to the avoidance of conflict. Inequality and deviance are problematic in Japan, no better or worse than any other modern democratic capitalistic society. It is argued that a more fair treatment of individuals regardless of age and nationality would benefit Japan. This final chapter describes the study of conflict in Japan; the main characteristics of the nihonjinron model; and the conflict over social policies.
