Chapter Summary

Japan's role in international politics after the Second World War has a lot in common with that of Germany, even if one takes into account the major regional and geo-strategic differences between both countries: In the era after the Cold War both states built up a stronghold against communism under the military umbrella of the USA. At the same time both states - although being the losers of the Second World War -developed into economic superpowers. It remains to be seen how far the probable result of the reform debate -no permanent seat in the Council for Japan - for the near future at least - will have an impact on Japan's UN policy, whether it will weaken or strengthen the ambition of its government to gain more influence and status in the United Nations.
