Unfortunately and due to unforeseen circumstances, this Noon Lecture has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule this event for the 2020-21 academic year.

Although the Japanese government has been promoting the acceptance of highly skilled foreign workers, the lack of skilled labor force in Japan is already at the critical level. Furthermore, the number of Japanese skilled workers (defined as those who have a university degree) moving overseas as permanent residents has been increasing. What motivates them to relocate to other countries permanently? As part of a research program aimed to understand demographic changes in Japan and their ramifications, we fielded a survey experiment to test hypotheses regarding the factors that motivate Japanese skilled workers to emigrate from Japan to other countries.

Yusaku Horiuchi is a Professor of Government and the Mitsui Professor of Japanese Studies at Dartmouth College. His research focuses on applying experimental designs and statistical methods to a range of empirical questions in political science. His substantive research interests include political behavior, public opinion, electoral institutions, and Japanese politics.
