Abstract

This paper examines Japan’s foreign aid sanction policy toward China. The Japanese government seems to be reluctant to take strict measures against China. Only due to strong criticisms from other aid donors did Japan cut aid to China. However, economic assistance was resumed as soon as Japan found a suitable pretext. What were the rationales for Japan’s policies in the country? What were the main factors that prevented Tokyo from taking strict measures against the country? This paper assumes that the driving force behind Japan’s aid policy is the promotion of Japan’s economic interests. As a conclusion, Japan has very strong economic and diplomatic relations with China. The need to maintain good relations with them became the main factor that determined Japan’s response to the human rights issues in the country. In other words, oftentimes, economic and diplomatic interests have prevented Japan from using stern foreign aid sanctions against China.
