JICA Ogata Sadako Research Institute for Peace and Development publishes working papers on the results of its research projects intending to stimulate active discussion. In March 2022, the Institute published Working Paper No. 228.
Working Paper No. 228 “Perceived Home and Host Country Institutional Environment Pressures by Bilateral Development Cooperation Agency’s Constituents” was written by Research Fellow Fushimi Katsutoshi. This study examines perceptions about institutional environment pressures from home and host countries among four distinct groups of staff of the bilateral development cooperation agency (i.e., headquarters [HQ] management, HQ nonmanagement, overseas office [OO] management, and OO nonmanagement). The study also discusses the significance of the research findings through the lens of a neoinstitutionalist perspective.
