Understanding theintention or not, Japanese NGOs have used various methods of bothofficial and unofficial to be influential over the Japaneseofficial decision-making in foreign aid. This book has examined howthey have become externally influential in exclusive politicalculture, therefore, it is ideal for those who seek to work in NGOsor professional who are already in the field and longing for somelogical back-up for their own practice.
