Title :【《UH・UR合同シシポジウム》報告】Japan-Pacific Linkages : A Perspective on Japan's approach to the Pacific aid industry
Authors :Young, Nanise
Issue Date :29-Mar-2013
Abstract :This paper focuses on how Japan approaches development aid in the Pacific region. Although attention is increasingly focused on the rise of China's engagement with the Pacific, Japan maintains a solid presence in the region, though with a dwindling aid budget and development programs that appear too small and apolitical to receive much attention. Along with standard policy approaches that avoid direct engagement with a country's political machinery, Japan's particular approach to Pacific Islands development is shaped by views of Japan's technical superiority, aid agency competition, and perceptions of the Pacific as paradise. I draw from my experience working for Japan's development aid program in Fiji where I was employed full-time as a development officer for Pacific regional programs.
