Dr. Jotaro Kato


KATO Jotaro is a research associate at Institute of Asian Migrations, Waseda University. 

After working in an NGO to support irregular migrants as a caseworker, he completed his PhD at Waseda University in September 2020.

He majors in international labor mobility and global sociology. His research interest is on irregular migrants, refugees and migration policy in Japan. He uses qualitative methods, with the belief that grassroots level observations, participation, interaction, and interviews contain as well as reveal the workings of greater thematic issues. He was a visiting scholar at Queens College, City University of New York (from August 2018 to February 2019) funded by JSPS Overseas Challenge Program for Young Researchers. He is also a visiting lecturer at Hosei University and Tokyo Women’s Christian University teaching multiculturalism.
