Sachiko Ishihara
Former Course Coordinator CEMUS, Ishiharas PhD project examines sustainable rural development in Japan. Specifically, looking at people who moved from the cities to the countryside, Ishihara want to understand: why did they move there? What does a ‘good life’ and a ‘good region’ mean for them? How are they experiencing the rural? And how are they in relation to and compare with people that have been living there longer? Furthermore, Ishihara aim to discuss the regional planning and development policies from these perspectives.
