The evolving relations of Japan and India
Leake, R. Nathan
MetadataShow full item record
At the beginning of the 21st century, Japan and India started to build their bilateral relationship. This growth happened despite Japan having cut off almost all relations with India two years previously after India’s nuclear weapons test and the previous minimal nature of the relationship. The relationship has grown from almost nothing to include annual meetings of the prime ministers, a free trade agreement, maritime security cooperation, and annual military exercises. This thesis looks at an array of factors within great power dynamics, multilateral and bilateral institutions, and domestic politics to determine the underlying cause behind Japan’s and India’s actions to determine the transience or permanence of the relations. It is concluded that balance of power considerations are the primary reason for increased Japan-India interaction. These considerations are influenced by the increasing activism of India and Japan in world affairs and the lack of historical controversies between the two states.
