European Institute of Japanese Studies & Grips development forum joint seminar
"Can Japanese Development Cooperation Tell Us Something about Regional and Global Change?"
2017-03-16 at 14:00
According to a new book that examines Japan's development assistance transition away from Official Development Assistance and towards Development Cooperation, the answer to this question is yes. The transition carries important messages not only to recipients of foreign aid but also the relationships Japan enjoys with its allies and strategic partners, as well as the relations to competing donors and rivals in the region and around the world.
Come and meet and discuss with some of the authors of the newly released book Japanese Development Cooperation: The Making of an Aid Architecture Pivoting to Asia (ed. André Asplund and Marie Söderberg, Routledge Oxon and New York 2017). Professor Marie Söderberg, Stockholm School of Economics, Yasutami Shimomura, Hosei University, Yoneyuki Sugita, Osaka University and Izumi Ohno, GRIPS, all contributors to the book will give short presentation of their views.
Date: Thursday, 16th March, 14:00 - 17:00
