Developmental Administration (Seminar)
Broadly speaking, the study of Developmental Administration is based on two different forms of government: that of Developmental Administration in developing third world countries and that of Aid Administration in industrialized countries.
It is an area of research that tries to make a contribution to solving the two extremes by linking the two different fields together. The conditions and progress of both Developmental Administration and Aid Administration in industrialized countries, varies greatly from country to country, and furthermore has many issues that must be faced, which leads to a wide field area to study from.
A wide range of different approaches is possible, including fieldwork, case studies, the theoretical structure, or the construction of models.

Regional Policy
Regional policies are policies on the “regional development” implemented to improve welfare for the residents of the region. The concept of “regional development” was originally defined as economic development by public investment, but gradually has changed to include social development as well.
Today, the scope has further expanded to include comprehensive development of the living environment. The bodies and methods of the regional development underwent changes at the same time as well.
This class will come to understand the genealogy and characteristics of the Japanese regional policy in the post war era, and then compare it with the regional policy of countries like the United Kingdom. At the same time, the class will study regional policies of specified regions including Okinawa.

Development Administration
This class will first examine the concept of Development Administration and studies related to the topic. Original interest for Development Administration was more towards implementation techniques rather then theory, but with the emergence of comprehensive ideas like “institutionalization”, became more theoretical.
The class will then take a look at the many Asian countries which became independent after WWII, study its’ national structural condition. The cold war structure in their background will also be explained. We will then analyze the situation of Developmental Administration in these countries for each decade of the latter half of the 20th century, taking into consideration the roles played by United Nations, international organizations and industrialized countries.
Finally the class will think about ways in which an administration, which harmonizes with the natural environment for the long term, can be developed.
