DIJ co-organizes ‘Japan-China Relations, 2001-2022’ book talk


The nature of Japan-China relations has shifted from “friendship” to “coexistence” during the five decades since the normalization of diplomatic relations in 1972. The newly published book Japan-China Relations, 2001-2022 (日中関係 2001-2022, University of Tokyo Press, 2023) collects seventeen chapters analyzing two decades of Japan-China relations since 2001 from different angles including politics, diplomacy, economy, and society. The online book talk “Japan-China Relations 2001-2022” on 5 July 2023 features the editors Takahara Akio (Graduate School of Law and Politics, University of Tokyo), Sonoda Shigeto (Institute for Advanced Studies on Asia, University of Tokyo), Marukawa Tomoo (Institute of Social Science, University of Tokyo), and Kawashima Shin (Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, University of Tokyo). Peter Gries (Manchester China Institute, University of Manchester) and DIJ principal researcher Torsten Weber will serve as discussants. The event is organized by the Global Asian Studies Initiative at the Institute for Advanced Studies on Asia and co-organized by the DIJ and the Manchester China Institute. Registration here
