JICA Development Studies Program (JICA website)
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 differ from those of Europe and the U.S., as well as about Japan's expertise as a post-war donor country. JICA Ogata Sadako Research Institute for Peace and Development (JICA Ogata Research Institute) is mainly in charge of the areas of law and politics, economics, and social development in JICA-DSP and works to building and enhancing partnerships with the graduate programs of Japanese universities. JICA Ogata Research Institute is engaged in the development of teaching and learning materials for the lecturers and the students on the experiences of Japan’s development and development experiences for facilitating their activities. JICA Ogata Research Institute also contributed to creating the TV lecture program “Seven Chapters on Japan’s Modernization”, the first joint product with the Open University of Japan for JICA scholarship students.
Under JICA-DSP, JICA Ogata Sadako Research Institute for Peace and Development (JICA Ogata Research Institute) develops case materials jointly with the International University of Japan (IUJ) for the instructors of the universities collaborating with JICA-DSP so that they can deliver lectures and the international students can learn effectively about the concrete experiences of Japan’s development and development cooperation.

As part of the JICA Development Studies Program (JICA-DSP), JICA produced a lecture program titled "Seven Chapters on Japanese Modernization" in 2019 in collaboration with the Open University of Japan. This video starts with the interview with the JICA President, Shinichi Kitaoka, on the objectives and outline of the whole series, which is followed by the introduction on the outline of each chapter. It is a good prologue to the seven chapters to learn about Japan and its 150 years of experience in modernization, including its experience as an ODA provider. In addition to the full chapters already on the air on BS231, the OUJ is going to launch the on-line self-learning program of the same subject in August 2020.
