Japan's India Engagement: From Different Worlds to Strategic Partners

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    Japan has sought to engage more strongly with India since the end of the Cold War. What has Japan sought to achieve, and how has it sought to achieve it? What factors have shaped Japan’s approach? The demise of the Soviet Union, China’s rise, Japan’s economic decline, the globalisation of the US-Japanese alliance, and India’s own receptiveness to deeper engagement have all played a part in pushing Japan toward closer engagement with India. But the more significant part of this transformation is the strategic dimension, which has evolved rapidly since the mid-2000s.
