Hirotaka Fujibayashi is a comparative political scientist focusing on the politics and political economy of immigration and refugee reception. He studied for his PhD in International Relations and Political Science at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (IHEID) in Geneva, Switzerland. He holds an MA in International Studies and an LLB from the University of Tokyo, Japan.

As a Max Weber Fellow, Hirotaka will continue developing a cross-national dataset on the de facto entitlement of refugee rights, stemming from his PhD project. Building on his original data, he intends to explore cross-national variation in host states’ policies regulating the rights of refugees and asylum-seekers.

Prior to joining the EUI, Hirotaka was a visiting graduate student at the Center for Comparative Immigration Studies of the University of California San Diego, and a visiting scholar at the Institute of International and Civil Security of Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Hirotaka has experience teaching research design, statistical methods in social science research, and various seminars on refugee and migration studies both at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
