About the Book

Beginning with the drafting of Vietnam’s civil law in 1996, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has supported the “making of laws” in developing countries including Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar. This is a field of cooperation unique to Japan, originating from its experience studying foreign legal systems during the Meiji Restoration.

Today, Official Development Assistance (ODA) is considered one of the pillars of Japan’s rule of law promotion. JICA has collected documents relating to its 20 years of work, along with interviews with those involved in rule of law promotion from Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and more.

Clashes over wariness towards foreigners and differences in understanding of legal terminology… This is a record of the obstacles overcome by the people of developing nations who wanted to draft their own national laws, and the Japanese lawyers who supported them, as well as their sincere efforts, struggles, and challenges. This is a recommended book for those interested in international cooperation, as well as those who want to know more about the rule of law promotion process.

内容紹介

「わが国の民法起草について助言してほしい」

ベトナム司法大臣のこの一言が、全ての始まりだった――。

ダムや橋を作ることばかりが途上国支援ではない。相手国の歴史や文化を尊重して、その国に合った「法づくり」を支援する……1996年、ベトナムでの民法起草を皮切りに、JICA(国際協力機構)は、明治維新で外国の法制度に学んだ経験を有する日本ならではのユニークな方法で、途上国の「法づくり」を支援してきた。

外国人に対する警戒心、法律用語の理解の違いによりかみ合わない議論……幾多の困難を乗り越え、自国の人々のための法律を作ろうとする途上国の人たちと、彼らを支えた日本の法律のエキスパート達の、ひたむきな努力、悩み、葛藤、そしてチャレンジの記録。

今や日本のODAの大きな柱の一つにまで成長した法整備支援。その20年間の活動の集大成として、日本をはじめベトナム、カンボジア、ラオスなど、支援にかかわった多くの人々のインタビューをもとにまとめられた、国際協力に関心のある人、法律家を志す学生にとって必携の書。
