Outline (in English)

(Course outline)
In order for society to function soundly, there is a role for the government (administration) to provide "public goods" such as social capital and public services, and there are companies that provide products and services and grow in pursuit of profit. In addition to these roles, it is said that the roles of non-profit organizations, including NGOs, are necessary.In recent years, notable activities of non-profit organizations have increased in areas such as education, environment, disasters, poverty, human rights, welfare, and medicine.
In this class, students will learn about the development and history of NGOs and NPOs in the world and in Japan with a lecturer who is actually involved in NPO practice.
In addition, external lecturers directly involved in NGOs and NPOs will be invited to explore, through questions and discussions, the issues we should consider in the future based on their experiences and struggles in the field.
Through these activities, students will learn about the possibilities and challenges of NGOs and NPOs in today's society and in the future.

1、To be able to understand the significance/role of non-profit organizations in society
2, To be able to understand the structural and institutional challenges of nonprofit organizations
3、 Become familiar with non-profit organizations and be able to have your own opinion

Instructors who are actually active representatives of NPOs use textbooks and use slides and videos to proceed with the lessons. I would like to share and discuss frankly not only my experiences, but also my conflicts and challenges, as my generation is somewhat similar to yours.
