AJISS-Commentary No. 243: “The Rise of Protectionism and Japan’s Trade Policy” by Shujiro Urata

by , 7 Apr 2017 | in periodicals | no comments yet

The Association of Japanese Institutes of Strategic Studies (AJISS) has just published the AJISS-Commentary No. 243, "The Rise of Protectionism and Japan' s Trade Policy", by Shujiro Urata, Professor of International Economics at Graduate School Asia-Pacific Studies, Waseda University.


Protectionism is on the rise worldwide. [Trump's protectionist policy is one such example.] Unless rising protectionism is stopped and reversed, the world economy will shrink, resulting in military conflict or other disastrous consequences.
- The TPP will not now be realized because of Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the TPP. Japan needs to contribute to the conclusion of other mega-FTAs such as the TPP-US, the RCEP and the Japan-EU FTA by cooperating with like-minded countries. - If the US approaches Japan for a bilateral FTA, Japan should accept this on several conditions, one being that a bilateral FTA would be a steppingstone to a mega-FTA such as the TPP.

AJISS-Commentary No. 217: “Prime Minister Abe’ s Statement on the 70th Anniversary of the End of WWII: The Case for Japan’ s Public Diplomacy” by Akio Watanabe

by , 31 Aug 2015 | in periodicals | no comments yet

The Association of Japanese Institutes of Strategic Studies (AJISS) has just published the AJISS-Commentary No. 217: "Prime Minister Abe’ s Statement on the 70th Anniversary of the End of WWII: The Case for Japan’ s Public Diplomacy" by Akio Watanabe, Vice-Chairman of the Research Institute for Peace and Security and Professor Emeritus at the University of Tokyo.

This is the statement by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of August 14, 2015.

Commentary by Prof. Akio Watanabe:

  • Underlying the Abe Statement is the hope for a future in which the issues now confronting Asia can be overcome in the spirit of conciliation and tolerance.
  • The Statement gained the acceptance of many people for the profound remorse expressed toward the number of innocent people who helplessly suffered countless hardships due to Japan's actions, and for the prime minister's adherence to the sincerely pologetic stance taken by his predecessors.
  • The ultimate assessment of the Abe Statement will depend on whether it inspires positive feedback.

AJISS-Commentary No. 191: “Our Sense of Uneasiness about America” by Nakayama Toshihiro

by , 25 Feb 2014 | in periodicals | no comments yet

The Association of Japanese Institutes of Strategic Studies (AJISS) has just published the AJISS-Commentary No. 191  "Our Sense of Uneasiness about America" by Nakayama Toshihiro,  professor of US politics and foreign policy at Aoyama Gakuin University, and Visiting Fellow at The Japan Institute of International Affairs. 

Has the US turned inward-looking? In a certain sense, the advent of the Obama administration could be considered a sign of such a turn. Indeed, one of the objectives stated by the Obama administration was a course correction away from the excessive intervention of the Bush era. Shaken by the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the US veered sharply onto a course of intervention to eliminate that threat. Many Americans undoubtedly had in the backs of their minds questions about whether this course had made the US safer or simply deepened the chasm with the international community as they elected Obama to pursue a new approach to relations with the rest of the world.
