I've listed this article for peer review because…
I am not really sure what to put here. What else can you add about an ID card? Seems pretty self-explanatory, but a listing is necessary. Several other Japanophiles have remarked that they were surprised one does not already exist.
Brianboulton comments: As a brief factual summary of how this system works this is OK, but a proper, developed Wikpedia article needs a lot more information. Examples of some of the questions that could be addressed are:
- What was the political/social background to the decision to introduce ARCs?
- When was the system introduced?
- What system, if any, did it replace?
- Is a fee payable? If so, what is this fee?
- What penalties are imposed on aliens for non-compliance?
- Has the system been assessed for effectiveness?
Travellingcari comments As someone who has lived in Japan and knows the importance of the ARC/Gaijin card, I definitely feel the article would benefit from some significant expansion. Reading it now leaves me feeling, 'why do I care about this?' and while I know it's important, I'm not sure that's conveyed through the current article. I found some sources here that might help, but I also agree with Brianboulton's comments above. Why/when was it introduced. Has it had any impact on Japanese society? You might also discuss it in the context of the new fingerprinting policies. When the card system was introduced did it generate anywhere near the controversey?
