The Mobility of People between Japan and China in the 21st Century

Prof. Gracia Liu-Farrer, Waseda University (Japan), Sociology at the Graduate School of Asia-Pacific Studies

Population movements between China and Japan resumed in the 1980s and rapidly increased in the decades thereafter. Entering the 21st Century, the trends of cross-border population movements continued despite changing economic and political contexts. Economic incentives, cultural attractions, existential concerns and lifestyle aspirations have continued to motivate people to move across the East China Sea. Moreover, an infrastructure of transnational mobility constructed by institutions, social ties, and information and communications technology exists to move people. This presentation discusses the different types of transnational Japanese and Chinese migrants and the impacts of such transnational mobilities on Japanese and Chinese societies.

Gracia Liu-Farrer is Professor of Sociology at the Graduate School of Asia-Pacific Studies, and Director of Institute of Asian Migration at Waseda University, Japan. Her research examines immigrants’ economic, social and political practices in Japan, and the global mobility of students and professional migrants. She is the author of Immigrant Japan: Mobility and Belonging in an Ethno-nationalist Society (Cornell University Press, 2020).
