$47.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)

Japan’ s program for official development assistance (ODA) is a critical tool of foreign policy. However, this program has historically been driven by quantitative goals. Only in the last decade have explicit principles and implementation policies emerged that concentrate on a qualitative, more human-centered approach to ODA.

It remains to be seen, however, whether Japan’s commitments to ODA reforms will be put into practice. Will Japan’ s ODA Charter be a tiger without teeth?
