Japan's international agenda by Yōichi Funabashi( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is Japan's political role in the world? Over the past decade, Japan has been increasingly pressured to assume more financial and political burdens globally. Its foreign policy has thus evolved in a piecemeal manner, around the question of "managing foreign pressures." To date, policy has been largely developed by bureaucrats, who are traditionally responsible for public policy in Japan. The lack of a clear set of foreign policy objectives, however, has made it impossible for the bureaucracy to play its previous role as the arbiter of public interests. Today, there is increased recognition that in a more pluralistic society, nongovernmental public policy specialists are needed to provide a more integrated and longer-term vision of foreign policy goals. This book represents the first private and nongovernmental indigenous effort to stimulate public debate of Japanese foreign policy. Japan's International Agenda makes a distinctive contribution to the foreign policy debate. Its contributors are younger Japanese non-governmental foreign affairs specialists, each with considerable international experience and a commitment to the belief that significant policy reforms are essential. As a statement of Japan's ability to contribute substantially to international policy debates on such broad questions as security and trade and development, Japan's International Agenda will enable scholars and experts in North America, Europe, the Asia-Pacific region, and elsewhere to engage in substantive dialogue on critical public policy issues with their Japanese counterparts

Emerging civil society in the Asia Pacific community : nongovernmental underpinnings of the emerging Asia Pacific regional community : a 25th anniversary project of JCIE by Tadashi Yamamoto( Book )

23 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emerging Civil Society in the Asia Pacific Community is a compilation of reports written by leading intellectuals and specialists from fifteen Asia Pacific countries - Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, the United States, and Vietnam - on their respective country's focus of activities of research institutions, foundations, and nongovernmental organizations and their interest in activities such as exchanges or studies that take place within the framework or context of Asia Pacific. This study assesses the present state of development of nongovernmental institutions in Asia Pacific countries and the regional interactions of nongovernmental efforts through the identification of existing networks or collaborative efforts, identifies major actors for such regional endeavors, and explores ways and means of further developing such nongovernmental regional underpinnings in the future. This survey is intended to provide a basis for future efforts, such as joint training activities and the creation of a database on regional activities."--BOOK JACKET
Power shuffles and policy processes : coalition government in Japan in the 1990s( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seven Japanese political scientists present in-depth analyses of the political change and policy-making processes in Japan in the 1990s. Included is a comparative analysis of the degrees of similarity and difference among the policy-making processes of the LDP and two coalition governments. Authors examine the structural changes in Japanese politics during the 1970s and 1980s that were the prelude to the party system change in the 1990s. Such factors as new policies aimed at the realignment of voters, structural reform and policy changes in the SDPJ, and the rise of both a new generation of politicians and new forces outside the political establishment are seen as having had significant influence."--BOOK JACKET

The prospect of a new, rapidly rising China poses both opportunities and challenges for regional community building in Asia Pacific. In this book, intellectual leaders from the region present their perspectives on China's development. Four chapters by Chinese authors analyze the domestic dynamics related to the country's political and economic development as well as its external economic and political/security relationships. Contributors from Japan, Korea, member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, and Australia/New Zealand cover the growing political influence of China in the region, it influence on regional security, and the implications of China's continuing economic growth. Five final chapters examine China's regional strategy toward Asia Pacific, Japan-China cooperation on regional community building, China's taking a greater role in regional security arrangements and the regional economic order and the cultural implications for the region of the rise of China

Authors from each of these countries discuss the current state of civil society in their country, the challenges facing institutions of governance, the current debate on the need to reform domestic governance, and the evolution of the role of civil society in governance. These essays shed new light on the way in which civil society around the world is contributing to political reform and the consolidation of democracy, as well as to government efforts to address a broad array of domestic and transnational issues."--Jacket
China-Japan-U.S. : managing the trilateral relationship by Morton Abramowitz( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many policy analysts believe China-Japan-U.S. relations to be the key triangle in world politics of the 21st century. While the emerging Asia Pacific region will have a profound impact on the future of the international system, the continuing security and prosperity of the region will be largely contingent upon enhanced cooperation between the region's three dominant economies: China, Japan, and the United States."--BOOK JACKET. "The essays collected here, one by a leading foreign policy expert from each of the countries, suggest means to strengthen trilateral dialogue and cooperation. Their analyses lead to the conclusion that achieving substantive dialogue will be critical to the management of the trilateral relationship among these major actors in the most dynamic region of the world in the coming century."--BOOK JACKET
Domestic adjustments to globalization( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The challenges of globalization have taken on a new urgency in light of the profound effect of the Asian financial crisis on regional stability. The region and the entire world must review both the positive and negative impact of globalization as national societies attempt to make needed adjustments without undue dislocation and economic pain."--BOOK JACKET. "This compilation of nine country surveys completed on the eve of the Asian crisis puts these fast-moving, contemporary developments into perspective. The Asian financial crisis has intensified debate on globalization issues and has resulted in a backlash against globalizing forces in the most affected countries. The crisis has tested many ideas and institutions associated with globalization. This volume focuses on three dimensions of those tests: economic strategies, governance, and leadership."--Jacket
Containing conflict : cases in preventive diplomacy( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the wake of the cold war, the likelihood of large-scale wars between major powers significantly decreased, but the international community faced a sudden increase in regional conflicts. Smaller-scale regional and ethnic conflicts of the type seen in Somalia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Kosovo began to proliferate, presenting a new challenge to strategists and policymakers around the world. Today, the need to strengthen peacekeeping mechanisms and to prevent and resolve conflicts is a major item on the international agenda." "In this volume, five Japanese international relations experts address the question of how the international community can best prevent and respond to such conflicts. Their chapters examine such themes as UN reform for the enhancement of preventive diplomacy capabilities; post-conflict peacebuilding; the principle of self-determination and ethnic conflict; the impact of forced displacement of populations on conflict prevention efforts; reconceptualizing security communities and power sharing to prevent conflict; and the connection between human rights, democratization, and preventive diplomacy. By analyzing the international community's responses to conflicts in such locations as the African Great Lakes region, the Balkans, Myanmar, and Cambodia, the authors draw lessons for managing regional conflict through preventive diplomacy."--Back cover

How electoral reform boomeranged( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How Electoral Reform Boomeranged presents the research and insights of six authors concerning the first general election in Japan's House of Representatives since the passage in 1994 of a political and electoral reform law. The October 1996 election was seen by reformers as a litmus test for the new law, which they thought would alter the style of campaigning in Japan. Campaign strategies dependent on the clout of an individual candidate's koenkai, or personal support group, were expected to give way to strategies emphasizing party-based electioneering." "The essays in this volume conclude that actual campaigning style remained mostly unchanged."--Jacket
Changing values in Asia : their impact on governance and development( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Asian values have been touted as the driving force behind Asia's rapid and remarkable economic strides in the past decades. But the financial and economic crisis of the late 1990s has launched an intense discussion on the relevancy of these same values to the difficulties Asia faces today. Do Asian values exist? If they do, how do they influence government policy, economic development, or foreign policy? Will they be a liability in the new age of globalization? These are among the many questions asked in the "Asian values" debate, answers to which are sought by the specialists brought together in this volume from Australia, China, Europe, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and South Korea."--BOOK JACKET
