Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses study and conceptualisation of Japanese sojourner in Australia. It is divided into three sections: In the first section, some arguments about the concept of the sojourner are given to identify an appropriate sociological meaning for the term. In the second section, basic categories used in this research project are described. Then, in order to introduce the sojourner- and settler-types of foreigners, four basic types of foreigners' settlement will be illustrated by reviewing relevant migration studies. There were a very small number of Japanese settlers who remained permanently; indentured labourers who were basically transients. There are significant numbers of long-term residents who actually live in societies, and should not be classified as settlers in the analysis of global migratory movements.

Keywords: Australia; conceptualisation; indentured labourers; Japanese sojourners; long-term residents; migration studies
