|Author: ||Owoeye, Jide|
This analytical and empirical study traces antecedents to the development of Japan's African policy and considers the implications of Japan's imperial past vis-a-vis Africa's colonial legacy for the shaping of that policy. It also weighs relevant domestic and external factors which impinge on political actors both in Japan and Africa. Examines the evolution of foreign diplomacy in Japan, economic relations, cultural and psychological dimensions. Finally, it speculates on the future role of Japan in Africa's international economic and political relations.
