||A Study of the Second Abe Regime's Diplomatic Strategy toword China|
|Date of Defense
||Japan's economy has gone into meltdown since the bubble economy in 1991, followed by frequent rotation of ruling parties which results in political instability and its failure in playing an active role in the Asia-Pacific region. Its influence has also been replaced by China who emerges as economic giant.|
China's rise stimulates the common nationalism within Japan. In this context, the Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has proposed the most radical postwar reforms during his second term to take positive external policies to cope with the new pattern of relationship between great powers put forward by the Chinese President Xi Jinping and to hedge against China through cooperation with neighboring countries and multilateral diplomatic attempts based on value-oriented diplomacy.
As the strategic cornerstone of the United States in the Asia-Pacific region, the reinforcement of US-Japan alliance is the best option for Prime Minister Abe to restore Japan’s leading role in the Asia Pacific region and retain its core national interests.
The foreign policies of Abe Regime also affect the balance of powers in the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, this study extensively collects the first-hand information on Prime Minister Abe and conducts analysis and comments through hierarchical analysis theory in international relations as well as literature analysis and case study from the qualitative research.
