Introduction: this week

Welcome to the fourth week of the course.

Last week we considered China’s economic and military power, and the implications of the rise of China for international politics with a focus on Asia-Pacific.

Currently, China is one of the most important actors of global power politics, and China can make a substantial impact upon the transformation of global economic and security orders. It is very important to remind ourselves that the rise of China does have manifold implications for global politics and for individual states.

Today we will talk about Japan, the third biggest economy in the world.
