Title Research Design for Political Science in the Middle East
Abstract \\\\\\\"The Arab Spring\\\\\\\" movement for democracy that occurred in 2011 has spread to the entire Arab world, and its momentum is showing no sign of decline. Effects on the order and structure of each country are significant. In some cases, they have taken the step to democratization. In some cases, bargaining between the authoritarian regime and the movement went well. In other cases, the movement led to a civil war and foreign military intervention. Now, the effects of the movement have extended to the international relations within the region. Syria has fallen into civil war, and at this moment, our focal point is the trends of its neighboring countries. This seminar will attempt a new understanding on the structure of the political dynamics in the Middle East that has emerged after the \\\\\\\"Arab Spring\\\\\\\", focusing on the foreign policies of the Gulf countries such as Saudi Arabia.

Abstract Japan is facing many big problems: a super-aging society, pension issues, unstable employment conditions and low wages among young people, widening gaps in society, food safety, and so on. However, the Diet is deadlocked and can not go anywhere. Every time an election is held, we, politicians, must conclude a new contract with the people - a contract made by our political ideas and policies beyond the framework of parties or factions. Politicians need to have the fortitude not to break the contract. Meanwhile, people need to have the fortitude to understand and cooperate on the policies proposed by the politicians they elected.

Title ODA (Official Development Assistance) vs. ODA (Our Development Alternative)
Abstract In the wake of the victory of the free market economy, international society seems to have formed the premature consensus that the development is all about economic prosperity. In line with such an ideology, \'Development and Aid\' undermines traditional human relationships among families and communities in developing countries and leaves them in confusion and deadlock even in the economic realms, in spite of good intentions and the \'invisible hand\'-driven economy. Therefore, NGOs should seek for an alternative way to protect the traditional values of local communities, including human dignity and the sense of ownership of their destiny. However, don\'t NGOs also create the consciousness of poverty among people, and hence subjugate them under the fierce global market system in the name of \'Development and Aid\'? The speaker, who is Korean, will talk about this topic from the broader perspective of the international \'Development and Aid\' regime, based on his nearly two decades of experience in the arenas of development and emergency relief mostly in Africa.
