Reviews

“This book traces the evolution of Japanese and Korean development cooperation and explores their future roles. It fills an important intellectual gap as most non-Asian researchers know very little about East Asia's OECD/DAC members. This thought-provoking book is essential reading for all who are examining the future of international cooperation and foreign aid in an increasingly uncertain world.” (David Hulme, Professor of Development Studies, University of Manchester, UK)

“This is a welcome and timely contribution to the scholarship on the history, politics and outcomes of development co-operation in East Asia. Its substantive content and analytic frameworks will be of interest and value not only for Development Studies but also for Comparative Social Policy studies more generally.” (Rebecca Surender, Pro Vice-Chancellor, University of Oxford, UK)

“Japan-Korea combined efforts would be a far reaching statement economically, intellectually and ethically. It can be a formidable force in support of this region’s core aspirations for development and long term stability. Such a role is much awaited.” (Binayak Sen, Director General of the Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies, Bangladesh)

“Japan and South Korea have both become increasingly noteworthy players in the field of international development cooperation. Using a comparative perspective and featuring chapters written by recognized country experts, this edited volume explores systematically this important yet under-studied topic. Scholars and practitioners of international development interested in East Asia should read and engage with is rich and excellent volume.” (Daniel Béland, James McGill Professor, McGill University, Canada)
