AbstractBurakumin are the largest minority population in Japan. While they are not ethnically nor racially different from the rest of the Japanese population, historical caste discrimination persists today. In 1969, the Buraku Liberation League contributed to the passage of the Law of Special Measures (LSM) that endeavored to address systemic discrimination against the Buraku population. This thesis evaluates the success of one aspect of the LSM called Dowa Education. Although Dowa Education has been hailed as a success, research indicates that it failed in its main goals.
