Course Description: This course offers an understanding of historical, domestic and international factors informing post-World War II Japan’s state identity and international behavior. The course looks at important areas of Japanese foreign and security policy identity and discourse, such as the role of the United States and Japan’s security policy options (pacifism versus “normal”), relations with China, the ‘history problem’ with Asian neighbors, and commitment toward the United Nations (and multilateralism), contextualized within the broader changes that are taking place in the international system as a whole, but with an emphasis on looking at the impact of the historical order transition that is taking place in Asia on Japan’s state identity. As such, the course employs both historical and theoretical perspectives to the treatment of contemporary developments by being mindful of the changes in international system in the last 100 years or so and the changes and continuities between pre-war and post-war Japanese states within these changes.
