Summaries :

The world is faced with a diverse range of security challenges in the
post-Cold War era. As globalisation continues apace, alternative
options, other than the military, are needed to counter these challenges
and ensure greater peace and stability. This talk is concerned with the
security policy of Japan and in particular how it can exert its economic
strength to alleviate the military tension on the Korean Peninsula and
surrounding region. The talk will aim to critique traditional
balance-of-power conceptions of Korean Peninsula security, and to show
how in the post-Cold War era there now exists a fundamental imbalance of
power between the two Koreas, characterised in particular by North
Korea's growing economic instability which generates, in turn, military
instabilty and tension. The paper will argue that most of the involved
powers, including Japan, have come to recognise that through projects
such as KEDO, there is a need to address the North Korean security
problem by the extension of economic power and cooperation. The paper
also contends that Japan disposes of considerable latent economic power
in areas such as production, trade, and aid, that could be utilised for
security ends on the Korean Peninsula.
However, this power remains poorly instrumentalised in the post-Cold War
era with regard to the Korean Peninsula due to a lack of policy-making
will on the part of Japan's leaders. The paper will
explore briefly the internal and external constraints upon Japan's use
of economic power in this case, and how Japanese policy is increasingly
moving out of synch with the other powers in the region following recent
missile and spy ship incidents. Instead, the paper argues that Japan has
devoted most of its policy-making energies in dealing with the North
Korean security problem to strengthening its military security role
through the redefinition of the US-Japan alliance, the Guidelines
review, and TMD. Thus, the conclusion of the paper is that, even though
Japan has been given an opportunity to use its economic power to assist
in the resolve the North Korean
security problem and to function as something akin to a global civilian
power in the new millennium, its security policy towards North Korea is
bereft of an innovative strategy and is drifting towards greater
incremental militarisation.
