Miyako Hayakawa is a social anthropologist, Postdoctoral research fellow for the project AspirE, at the ULB. She received her PhD from EHESS (Ecoles des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales) in France. In her PhD dissertation, entitled “Patriarchal constraints in migration: gendered experiences of Japanese migrants/expatriates in France,” she examined how patriarchal gender relations continue to be maintained in a receiving country where more “modern” family values are constructed, and how women challenge patriarchy by everyday social practices, particularly by their language behaviour. Her research focuses on anthropology of family and kinship, Japanese migration, international divorce, and privileged international mobility.

She is a former JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) fellow for her research on political science, at Sophia University and the University of Tokyo. In 2015, she received the Louis Dumont Prize for her research in social anthropology. She is the author of "Migrating to an ideal country? Democratisation of Japanese Migration to France" (Ebisu, Etudes japonaises, forthcoming 2023). She is a member of MAF (Migrations asiatiques en France), Asian migration research network, and one of the main researchers of the REACTAsie project of MAF, an action-research on racism and discrimination against Asian immigrants in France.
