Abstract: This thesis studies notions of membership in a local society in the age of globalization, focusing on the idea of public. Scholars argue that the recent trends of socio-economic globalization have had a significant impact on the role of the state, as well as the relationship between society and the state. This paper specifically studies the way people respond to the changes in their everyday lives as a consequence of globalization. My hypothesis is that as globalization changes the way people think and act, people interpret and express via a normative view of society. Particular ideologies of social organizations filter the impact of globalization as it is expressed through public policies, social movements, and social interactions. Focusing on the case of Okubo, a multi-ethnic community in Tokyo, this study analyzes the residents' perceptions and reactions to the changes that Okubo has experienced as a consequence of the rapid influx of foreign residents, with a particular emphasis on the differences in people's normative views of Okubo society. My study of Okubo especially focuses on a local citizens' NGO, Kyojukon and their ideology, which advocates the creation of a multicultural community in Okubo based on their universalistic notion of membership to the local society.
