Peace without Justice: Japan
What does Japan teach us about the emergence and limits of an aspiring global Good Samaritan? Perhaps the most important measure is to socialize and network lagging states. International socialization has been tightly linked to most of the progress in Japan thus far. Japan's record shows that multilateralism matters and that the pursuit of peace is not enough to secure human dignity. When Japan was readmitted to the U.N., 10 years after the war, Ambassador Takasu linked the Japanese Constitution to the U.N. Charter—the right to live in peace, and the duty to act as a member of the global community. The next stage for Japan to act globally is to foster the linkage between peace and justice and to appreciate that a region is only as strong as its weakest link.
