Abstract

Abstract:

In the post-cold war world Japanese security policy has grasped at nationalistic elements within Japanese society in attempts to “securitize” itself by means of a foreign policy independent of the United States. The role of absolute and relative gains in the making of Japanese foreign and security policy will be examined in light of alternative security issues. Working from International Security: A New Framework for Analysis by Barry Buzan et al., this article will examine Japanese security policy in light of Japan’s attempts to securitize itself in non-traditional ways that impact traditional security.
