Japan and the Changing Global Aid Architecture

Japan and the Changing Global Aid Architecture

Over the last decade, the global aid architecture has changed with more and diverse actors. While Japan’s aid has historically been criticised for pursuing self-interest or national interest, Japan has also been reforming its aid policy as an OECD/DAC member.

The 68th Stockholm Seminar on Japan. 

How has Japan’s aid policy been aligned towards the global norms? What is the implication of recent change in global aid architecture on Japan’s future aid policy?
