Jun IkenoProfessor


Based on research focusing on rural communities in the semi-arid region of East Africa, I have studied changes in the rural socio-economic structure by analyzing the diversity of livelihood patterns, including urban labor migration. I conduct dynamic analysis of changes in rural communities by looking at the ways communities adapt to external changes in the political, economic, and social environments, and how they realize endogenous development capacity leading to its own social transformation.
