Domestic factors in China's external policy : the case of Japan-China relations Takahara, Akio
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the Institute of Asian Research (IAR). Chaired By: Joseph Caron, Former Canadian Ambassador to Japan. Besides international factors such as the 2008 world financial crisis, there are important domestic factors in China's current external policy. They include the intensive debates over the necessity and content of economic and political reforms, and people's dissatisfaction and anxiety about the flip side of China's rapid growth. This talk will take up the case of China's hardline approach towards Japan over the Senkaku (Diaoyu) Islands, and discuss why it continues despite the undaunted advancement of economic exchange, and how the rest of the world should react to it.
