New Video Releases: Book Talk and an Interview on “Introducing Foreign Models for Development—Japanese Experience and Cooperation in the Age of New Technology”


JICA Ogata Sadako Research Institute for Peace and Development (JICA Ogata Research Institute) has released two video trailers for a book titled “Introducing Foreign Models for Development: Japanese Experience and Cooperation in the Age of New Technology.”

In the first video titled Book Talk “Introducing Foreign Models for Development”, Ohno Izumi, one of the editors of the book and a senior research advisor at the JICA Ogata Research Institute, provides an overview of translative adaptation—learning and modifying foreign models to create an enhanced local model—in the process of industrialization. She draws on Japan’s experiences of industrial catch-up and its development cooperation with Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The second video titled Interview “Introducing Foreign Models for Development” with Prof. Izumi Ohno is an interview conducted by Visiting Fellow Nikolay Murashkin of the JICA Ogata Research Institute, where Ohno shares her perspectives on Japan’s approach to development cooperation in a world characterized by digital transformation, with increased social and sustainability concerns as embodied in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Released by Springer in October 2023, this book builds on the results of a research project titled “Japanese Experience of Industrial Development and Development Cooperation: Analysis of Translative Adaptation Processes.”
