JICA Development Studies Program / JICA Chair

Japan is the very first country and still is one of the very few countries that has modernized from a non-Western background to establish a free, democratic, prosperous, and peace-loving nation based on the rule of law, without losing much of its tradition and identity.

JICA Development Studies Program (JICA-DSP) invites future leaders from partner countries to Japan, and offers them the opportunity to learn about Japan's modernization and development experiences, which differs from those of Europe and the U.S., and its wisdom as a country that provided cooperation toward the progress of developing countries after World War II.

In order to expand the opportunities of such Japanese studies in partner countries as well, JICA now started the “JICA Chair (JICA Program for Japanese studies)” in collaboration with leading universities in partner countries.
