Beschreibung

This book examines Japan's changing pacifism and security identity in an application of analytical eclecticism. Four theoretical perspectives of Japan's security identity (pacifist state, UN peacekeeper, normal state, US ally) are examined as case studies. This book attempts to reveal Japan's 'core security identity' as a 'global pacifist state'.

This book examines Japan's changing pacifism and its implications for Japan's security identity from 1945 to the present. To examine the shift in Japanese pacifism, this research employs the concept of 'negative pacifism' (Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution) and 'positive pacifism' (the Preamble of the Constitution) as an analytical framework. To analyse multiple factors which facilitated the shift in Japan's pacifism, this study applies 'analytical eclecticism' and integrates the analytical framework (negative-positive pacifism) with orthodox international relations theories and approaches. In an application of analytical eclecticism, the author proposes four theoretical models of Japan's security identity: (a) 'pacifist state' (classical liberalism/negative pacifism); (b) 'UN peacekeeper' (neo-liberalism/positive pacifism); (c) 'normal state' (classical realism/domestic pressure); and (d) 'US ally' (neo-realism/external-structural pressure). In addition to the four basic models above, this book attempts to reveal Japan's 'core security identity' as a 'global pacifist state'.

Klappentext

This book examines Japan's changing pacifism and its implications for Japan's security identity from 1945 to the present. To examine the shift in Japanese pacifism, this research employs the concept of 'negative pacifism' (Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution) and 'positive pacifism' (the Preamble of the Constitution) as an analytical framework. To analyse multiple factors which facilitated the shift in Japan's pacifism, this study applies 'analytical eclecticism' and integrates the analytical framework (negative-positive pacifism) with orthodox international relations theories and approaches. In an application of analytical eclecticism, the author proposes four theoretical models of Japan's security identity: (a) 'pacifist state' (classical liberalism/negative pacifism); (b) 'UN peacekeeper' (neo-liberalism/positive pacifism); (c) 'normal state' (classical realism/domestic pressure); and (d) 'US ally' (neo-realism/external-structural pressure). In addition to the four basic models above, this book attempts to reveal Japan's 'core security identity' as a 'global pacifist state'.
