On the occasion of reaching this significant milestone, JICA-RI has been conducting a research project to review Japan’s ODA towards post-2015 (Project for the 60th Anniversary of Foreign Aid). The results of this research are to be published in an English book.
Japan’s ODA, which started as part of war reparations, has been changing over the years responding to the context of the times. Looking back the path and recognizing the accomplishments and challenges, the research project attempts to draw policy implications for Japan’s future ODA and international efforts among development partners. Furthermore it is expected to present the knowledge and effective systems that have been accumulated, which will contribute to discussion on post-2015 as well as transformation required for revolution of development aid, including its redefinition, theories and practice.
Senior Fellow John Page of the Brookings Institution, Professor Emeritus Yasutami Shimomura of Hosei University, and JICA-RI Director Hiroshi Kato will edit the book, while 26 authors from home and abroad will contribute to chapters. A public seminar to present the results of the research will be held at the JICA Ichigaya in November 2014.
