Contextualizing Central Asian migration to East Asia: The case of Uzbek new comers to Japan

Timur Dadabaev (University of Tsukuba) & Sonoda Shigeto (University of Tokyo, Tobunken)

This seminar will focus on the Central Asian migration to East Asia by presenting the outcomes of the survey on the case of new comers from Uzbekistan to Japan. It will introduce the main points outlined in the recently published book titled The Grass is Always Greener? Unpacking Uzbek Migration to Japan (Edited by Prof. Timur Dadabaev, Palgrave, April 2022), which is the first study focusing on the phenomenon of education and language migration from Central Asia to Japan. This study unpacks the motivations, migration channels and adaptation strategies of migrants to the realities of Japan.
