Videos Are Now Available for the Book “Japan’s International Cooperation in Education: History and Prospects”


Considerable changes have occurred in international development cooperation over the last 70 years since the inception of the concept in the wake of World War II. These transformations have resulted in a paradigm shift in development cooperation: we are now tasked to revisit histories that have shaped the present so that we can deliver development cooperation more effectively.

Japan’s International Cooperation in Education: History and Prospects is the first book to comprehensively document the history of Japanese development cooperation in education from the 1950s to the mid-2010s. Each chapter uses policy documents and project data to feature historical and empirical analyses, unfolding possibilities of exploring new forms of cooperation in education.

The book-based video is now available on the JICA YouTube channel. In the video, Senior Research Advisor, Kayashima Nobuko, Visiting Fellow, Kuroda Kazuo, and Visiting Fellow, Kitamura Yuto of the JICA Ogata Sadako Research Institute for Peace and Development provide an overview of the book. Videos offered by the authors/editors for selected chapters are also available. The profile pages of the editors can be viewed at the links below.
