Japan’s policy on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and, more broadly, on Middle East issues generally has been shaped by two key factors: Tokyo’s quest for oil, and its awareness of the wider international diplomatic and political setting. Unfortunately for Japan, these two considerations have frequently pushed Japanese policy makers in opposite directions. Historically, Japan has preferred a low-key approach to the region. But in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, Tokyo has faced increasing pressure to become more engaged--more specifically, to contribute to the U.S.-led war efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Does Japan aspire to be a relevant player in the Middle East? Can it play such a role, if it wishes to do so? Wilson Center visiting scholar Yuka Uchida will discuss these and related issues as she explores the post-9/11 evolution of Japanese policy in the broader Middle East.
