The International Minimum

Wartime Pan-Asianism was discredited with Japan’s defeat, but the government did not completely abandon its vision of regional leadership. Unable in postwar circumstances to exert strong political leadership, Japanese representatives to the 1955 Bandung Conference redeployed wartime alternatives to standard diplomacy, emphasizing supposedly apolitical initiatives such as economic cooperation and cultural exchange. Such postwar internationalisms played a part in the creation of a new Japanese national identity. At Bandung, Japanese representatives once again sought to define Japan as part of Asia, but as an economic and cultural leader, instead of a hegemon.
