Japan and Quiet Diplomacy

Simon Presley

Studenteropgave: Speciale


This MA thesis makes use of Japan's foreign policy as a case for investigating how a state can make use of Quiet Diplomacy and adapt it to varying circumstances. It also looks at what circumstances make the use of Quiet Diplomacy difficult or downright impossible, and what a state such as Japan might do in such a case. The thesis looks at three concrete cases in order to do this: Japan's dealings with Vietnam and the ASEAN post the Vietnam war, The Takeshima/Dokdo islands dispute between Japan and S.Korea, and the Senkaku/Daioyu islands controversy between Japan, China, and Taiwan.
