Japanese foreign policy in international political affairs, particularly after the Second World War, was criticized as relying solely on bilateralism and dismissed as blindly emulating American foreign policy. This book examines Japanese multilateralism from the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 to its latest bid for a permanent seat on the UN Security Council. At the threshold of the twenty-first century, the author asserts that Japan can play a more proactive role in the United Nations and in the Asia-Pacific through its cooperative security approach with emphasis on prevention of conflicts.

'This book by Akiko Fukushima shows the course which Japan's foreign policy should take now and early in the new century, after having examined Japanese traditional foreign policy and new trends in international peace and security following the end of the Cold War. Japanese foreign policy has traditionally relied primarily on bilateralism reflecting U.S. foreign policy, and Japan was sometimes criticized as a free rider in international security. Now, Japan has begun a slow shift in its emphasis towards a more multilateral approach by taking a more positive role within its economic and political framework. Through careful description and logical analysis, Ms Fukushima's recommendation of a strengthened multilateral approach based on cooperative security is highly persuasive as the best way for Japan to proceed into the coming millennium. This book discusses the path Japan is capable of taking for real political leadership as a navigator in the twenty-first century.' - Mitsuru Kurosawa, Professor of International Law and Relations, Osaka University
