Japan started to accept foreign trainees from the 1960s. In the 1990s, Japan introduced an integrated foreign trainee and technical intern system, which has played an important role in the labour migration from China to Japan. However, the infractions of labour rights were found in this system, of which the Chinese Labour Agencies are the main causes. This thesis aims to explore the existing infraction problem in the labour migration from China to Japan by analyzing the role of the Chinese Labour Agencies in this system. Data collection are conducted through literature review such as relevant research papers, documents analysis such as governmental report, and interviews such as interview scholars in the universities, staff from quasi-governmental organizations, staff from labour agencies, and previous Chinese trainees. Finally, the author concludes that the Chinese labour agencies are playing an important role in the foreign trainee and technical intern system. The current infractions issues of labour rights are caused by the chaos governance of Chinese labour agencies, the illegal guaranties and the ambiguous labour contracts Meanwhile, the author suggests that in order to improve the current foreign trainee and technical intern system, the governance of Chinese labour agencies should be improved.
