Abstract

ternational Cooperation (JBIC). These significant administrative changes, and the new official aid policy criteria that have been adopted, also are not discussed in this book. Finally, foreign aid is also a functional policy area governed by multilateral norms, designed to achieve a balance among competing goals. Salient donor concerns include poverty alleviation, social development, institutional development, sustainable development practices, macroeconomic policy reform, increased access to international trade and investment, and new commercial opportunities for donors in the developing world. In this regard, Japan in the 1990s moved toward greater compliance with multilaterally generated norms, but since the start of this decade it has begun increasingly to diverge from the movement of the international donor community with respect to key issues such as volume of aid, debt forgiveness, and aid tying. This significant turn and the relevance for Japanese aid policy of norms determined by multilateral regimes are also overlooked in this study. These lacunae are understandable in light of the author's desire to focus on bilateral aid allocation as an important indicator of U.S.-Japan foreign policy coordination in the 1990s. The foreign aid areas not covered are mentioned only to explain why this study should not be construed
