Professor Sakiko Fukuda-Parr Studies in Japan as a JICA-RI Distinguished Fellow

GPIA Professor Sakiko Fukuda-Parr is studying development assistance in Tokyo this summer as a Japan International Cooperation Agency Research Institute (JICA-RI) Distinguished Fellow.  “In her research project, she aims to show that the view of development assistance as cooperative and reciprocal is more effective and beneficial than the view that ODA is charity, held by traditional Western donors. Japan shares the philosophy of cooperative, reciprocal assistance with emerging donors such as China and India, she said.” For more information on Professor Fukuda-Parr’s ODA research this summer, please visit the JICA-RI page.
