Gunei Sato
Executive Director of The Japan Foundation, Japanese-Language Institute、Urawa
Emeritus Professor at Tokyo Gakugei University 

During the 26 years I served as a professor at the Center for Education of Children Overseas of Tokyo Gakugei University, I conducted extensive research specializing in the education of Japanese children living abroad and children with foreign backgrounds in Japan. Initially, my research focused on understanding the educational experiences of Japanese children living abroad. However, my interest expanded to include children with diverse backgrounds residing within Japan. Throughout my career, I have dedicated myself to developing the JSL (Japanese as a Second Language) curriculum, drawing inspiration from language education policies and practices implemented in Australia. Since then, I have actively contributed to policymaking and the implementation of educational policies to promote inclusivity and provide support systems for these children. Since April 2020, I have served as the Executive Director of the Japan Foundation Japanese Language Institute. Some of my recent works include “Tabunka-Shakai ni ikiru kodomo no kyouiku(Education for Children in a Multicultural Society)” (2019: Akashi ) and ” Kaigai de Manabu kodomo no kyouiku(Education of Children Studying Abroad)” (co-authored  2020: Akashi Shoten).
