Share An Economic Analysis of Sino-Japanese Relations
2015-3-5 16:41
Liu Junhong (Liu Junhong is Research Professor of the Institute of Japanese Studies, CICIR.) The strong inter-dependence of the economies of China and Japan is the platform on which their relations can be improved. However, along with globalization, China’s economy has become more integrated with the global economy, which has meant that economically speaking it is now less dependent on Japan. Meanwhile, Japan’s economy has grown more dependent on China’s. It is clear, then, that the econom ...

Share Why Is the Abe Government so Anxious to Improve Relations with China?
2015-3-4 23:27
Editor’s Note: Sino-Japanese relations have been tense in recent years. In particular, since Abe came to power, Japan has not only been “desperately struggling”with China on territorial and historical issues, but has also tried to set up an“encircling network”against China. Thus Sino-Japanese relations have emerged as the most risky bilateral relations in the Asia-Pacific region. As the two largest powers in East Asia, and the world’s second and third largest economies, the continuing con ...

This essay will examine the background, nature and meaning of Abe’s Active Pacifism. I The idea of pacifism dates back to the com ...

    CD Forum is a Blog not a book! This is way too long to put up in a single blog post! I think we welcome the special thoughts of CIR writers when they take the trouble to write them succinctly and specially for this Forum but not the copy and paste of masses of existing material.  Please consider writing special contributions for discussion here.
