In this research, we have investigated the social activities and functions of former Ryugaku-sei (foreign student in Japan) after returning to their own countries.
The research subjects were the returned Ryugaku-sei in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Korea and Taiwan (Taiwan only for the first year). Our research process was divided into the following three areas ; 1) the survey research in a specific country for each collaborating researcher, 2) the construction of a Ryugaku-sei alumni data base, 3) the workshop for the research communication and the further development.
In the first year, most activities were focused on survey research in the five countries. The six member researchers visited and had chances to have discussion meetings with former Ryugaku-sei's in these countries. The researchers got to share the common understanding about the actual background of Ryugaku-sei to Japan through this case studies.
In the second year, the country specific researches were continued and a new
project on constructing a Ryugaku-sei alumni data base got started. While alumni organizations of former Ryugaku-sei were established in some countries including Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, its membership was still biased. For conducting a scientific assessment of the Japanese Ryugaku-sei policy from our view, a Ryugaku-sei alumni data base would be essential as a baseline population. We, therefore, have developed a common format among the six national universities and began input work. In the future, we could follow the former Ryugaku-sei wherever they move when this data base were in use within some ethical limitations.
In the third and final year, we had held a research workshop at AIHD (ASEAN Institute for Health Development) of Mahidol University, Thailand, for two days. Almost all the research members and other former Ryugaku-sei attended and had a lively discussion about the historical and future Ryugaku-sei issues from various aspects.
This three year research project was quite useful for the researchers to extend our views in a new research field in Ryugaku-sei issues in Japan. The project also encouraged not only the Japanese researchers but also the researchers as the former Ryugaku-sei in Asian countries who are watching Japanese behavior and intention in the international arena. Finally we would like to express our appreciation to the Ministry of Education and Culture for supporting this project. Less
