JICA Ogata Sadako Research Institute for Peace and Development (JICA Ogata Research Institute) research project "Japan’s Development Cooperation: A Historical Perspective" aims to objectively and empirically analyze the 60-year history of Japan's development cooperation from a variety of angles. The research results will be compiled into seven (Japanese-language) books.
These background papers have been produced to provide useful knowledge, materials and information for this research project, mostly in Japanese, but some in English. English papers can be accessed from the "Download" links below. (Japanese papers also can be downloaded from the “Related Link.”)
JICA Ogata Research Institute will update this page when more English papers are available.
