Mr. Sato believes his knowledge and experiences has prepared me for TIJ Workshop for Emerging Leaders on the Rule of Law. He served as a senior advisor on international judicial cooperation at Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) from 2006 to 2015. He designed, monitored and implemented multi-year comprehensive rule of law programs in Asian and African countries. In every country he endeavored to grasp actual situations through field surveys and utilized the results of those surveys for policy dialogue, project designs and implementations. Also, he worked for the government of Vietnam as a Hanoi-based rule of law advisor from 2004 to 2006.
He has a wealth experience in providing advice on policies for judicial reform, and designing, managing, monitoring and evaluating democracy, human rights and governance programs. He is keen to be involved in rule of law promotion in Southeast Asian countries based on his experiences in JICA. Your rigorous Workshop will be a precious opportunity to exchange practical knowledge and lessons learned in the field of Rule of Law promotion. In addition, development and improvement of international cooperation activities in the justice sector were cores of my tasks over ten years. He is planning to summarize JICA’s lessons learned in Rule of Law cooperation in an academic paper for further improvement of international cooperation in this area.
