Abstract

The Case for Japanese National Security Independence: A Possible Future Imperative

Japanese defence, security and foreign policy has always been adaptable and flexible such that Japan has traditionally been able to not only survive but thrive in the international system. This has been due to Tokyo’s leadership being cognizant of the power structures in international relations and correspondingly being able to ally herself with the most suitable hegemon while pitting herself against weakening adversaries. Apart from Japan’s unequivocal defeat in World War Two where Tokyo drastically miscalculated in making an enemy of the US, her defence and foreign policy has served her well and upheld the prime Asian status of the Land of the Rising Sun for much of contemporary history.
